Most Senators couldn’t tell you the cost of a gallon of milk. Or how much beef has gone up this year.
But I’m not like most Senators, or any of the other millionaires running for Senate.
My mom was a teacher, my dad worked third shift.
I know how hard you’re working, and I know that by bringing manufacturing home, we create jobs and we lower costs.
If we want to change Washington, we’ve got to change the people we send there.

About Mandela Barnes
Mandela Barnes’ story is a Wisconsin story. Born and raised in Milwaukee, Mandela is the proud son of a union household running for the U.S. Senate to give every Wisconsinite a fair shot at the American Dream. From his days as an organizer to his work in the State Assembly and as Wisconsin’s first Black Lieutenant Governor, Mandela has consistently put in the work to connect with every community across Wisconsin. When it comes to supporting family farms, Main Streets, workers, and unions across the state, Wisconsinites know they can count on Mandela Barnes to go to bat for them because he understands the challenges they face firsthand. In the Senate, Mandela will fight to bring good-paying jobs back to Wisconsin and to expand opportunities for the middle class.
Mandela is proud to have earned the endorsement of Democratic Party leaders including Senators Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker, House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, former NARAL President Ilyse Hogue, and over 130 state and local elected officials in Wisconsin.
