MADISON — Yesterday, Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes, Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate, hosted a meet and greet with supporters in Black River Falls.
Mandela spoke about issues ranging from protecting abortion rights to defending Social Security and Medicare for the hundreds of thousands of Wisconsin retirees at risk of losing their livelihoods and the benefits they have paid into throughout their lives.
- Barnes says his priorities include issues like abortion rights and protecting social security.
- Barnes added one of his priorities is to help support the middle class.
- “We have a plan to make sure our small family farmers have the resources they need. So they aren’t facing the rates of bankruptcy they’ve been facing for the last couple of years… Rebuilding the middle class is about supporting the workforce all across Wisconsin. Make sure people can put food on the table. Make sure people have access to quality health care. Things that Ron Johnson consistently denies people in this state,” said Barnes.
