Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes addresses a crowd at the Capitol during his inaugural address.

Courageous Leaders PAC has lunched an ad buy praising Dem Mandela Barnes in the U.S. Senate race.

It’s the first outside group to go up on TV backing any of the Dems running for the party’s nomination to face Johnson.

The group didn’t respond to an email WisPolitics.com sent through its website.

A Dem source said the buy, which began last week and already runs through next week, is running in the Madison and Milwaukee markets.

Courageous Leaders PAC doesn’t list any information about the group on its website. It has a video posted that runs in a loop featuring Barnes and Johnson.

According to Open Secrets, Barnes is the only candidate the PAC is focusing on in the 2022 cycle.
