The NRSC has launched a new TV ad charging Barnes’ agenda includes cutting the prison population in half.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee said it is a high six-figure buy on TV and digital that will run throughout the state.
The spot opens playing a clip of Barnes saying, “Reducing prison populations is now sexy.”
The narrator says Barnes is talking about releasing violent criminals and “his administration” has already paroled 884 convicted criminals, including more than 200 murderers and 44 child rapists.
The ad again plays the clip of Barnes saying reducing prison populations is now sexy.
The narrator closes the spot, “Mandela Barnes for Senate, just plain dangerous.” The final screen shows Barnes next to U.S. Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.
