MADISON — Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes, candidate for U.S. Senate, announced today he raised more than $520,000 in the month of January — more than any of his primary opponents raised in the entire fourth quarter according to FEC reports released on Monday. The announcement comes after Lt. Governor Barnes massively outraised his primary opponents and incumbent Republican Senator Ron Johnson in the latest fundraising quarter.
In January, Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes raised a total of $520,036 from nearly 13,000 individual donors with an average donation of $32.
Maddy McDaniel, Mandela Barnes for Wisconsin Communications Director, made the following statement:
“This campaign is breaking records and out-raising the field because voters trust Mandela Barnes to fight for the middle class, put Wisconsin first, and take on the special interests that rule Washington. Wisconsinites are sick and tired of a decade of Ron Johnson prioritizing himself and his wealthy donors over the needs of working people. The outpouring of support from across the state makes it clear that Mandela Barnes is the only candidate in this race with the grassroots momentum needed to beat Ron Johnson.”
