The Senate Leadership Fund, a PAC aligned with Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell, has launched its first ads post-Labor Day in Wisconsin, targeting Dem nominee Mandela Barnes on crime.
The group has filed reports with the FEC totaling nearly $2.4 million in independent expenditures between Aug. 31 and yesterday. That includes more than $1.5 million on TV, $229,356 on radio and $615,074 on digital ads.
The ads all have the same theme, arguing Barnes would make crime worse.
The narrator in the 30-second TV ad says Barnes would eliminate cash bail “even after the Waukesha Christmas parade attack,” and supports “amnesty and sanctuary cities for illegals.”
The narrator adds Barnes worked for a group that wants to defund the police and has a “long record of smearing police while spending your tax dollars on security for himself.”
The narrator closes the spot, “Mandela Barnes: Wrong on crime, dangerous for Wisconsin.”
