Amid heightened concerns over rising crime, Democrat U.S. Senate candidate Mandela Barnes is still refusing to take public safety seriously. On Capital City Sunday yesterday, Barnes doubled-down on his fringe-left stance on eliminating cash bail – which would allow more violent criminals back on the streets and endanger more communities.

Previously, when Barnes was in the State Assembly, he sponsored a bill to eliminate cash bail which would have barred courts from considering the severity of a defendant’s crime. This proposed bill, which died in committee, would have severely limited the prosecutor’s ability to argue that the defendant would be a risk to the community.

Reminder: The suspect in the horrific Waukesha Christmas Parade attack, violent repeat offender Darrell Brooks, was allowed to walk free on “inappropriately low” bail.

“Keeping communities safe from crime continues to be a high priority for Wisconsinites. Barnes is out-of-touch with the mainstream as his policies consistently aim to appease the far-left.” – Republican Party of Wisconsin Rapid Response Director Mike Marinella
