MADISON — Mandela Barnes, candidate for U.S. Senate, raised $8.5 million in the first 19 days of October, following over $20.1 million raised in Q3, from nearly half a million individual donations. 

“The momentum is on Mandela’s side as we head into these last critical weeks of the election,” said Maddy McDaniel, spokesperson for the Mandela Barnes campaign. “Since the launch of the campaign, Mandela has created strong coalitions across the state that are still continuing to grow in these last weeks. Wisconsin voters know Ron Johnson doesn’t share their values and are ready to send him packing.” 

As Mandela continues to travel across the state for his “Win for Wisconsin” bus tour, Wisconsinites are turning out in masses to hear from their future Senator about the issues that are most important to them. Over the next 11 days, Mandela will continue his “Win for Wisconsin” bus tour, making over 100 stops and meeting Wisconsinites in all corners of the state.
