MADISON — In the first two weeks of October, Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes has earned endorsements from 8 more local leaders from across Wisconsin. The recent endorsements come from every corner of the state, and they join dozens of other elected leaders who are supporting Barnes’ campaign to defeat Ron Johnson, change the game in Washington, and deliver for Wisconsin working families.

“We’re building a campaign to compete and win in every corner of Wisconsin,” said Mandela Barnes. “Our message is simple: we need leaders in Washington who will stand up for Wisconsinites and work to create opportunities in every corner of our state. And that message is resonating. That’s why we’ve received grassroots contributions from all 72 counties in Wisconsin, and it’s why local leaders in small towns, big cities, and everywhere in between have joined together behind our campaign.”
