VICTORY: DFA hails Mandela Barnes’ win in Lieutenant Governor primary in Wisconsin
Mandela Barnes just won the Democratic primary for Lieutenant Governor in Wisconsin. Democracy for America has been a proud supporter of Mandela Barnes race for LG since May 2018.
Statement from Democracy for America Chair Jim Dean on Mandela Barnes's primary victory in the race for Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin:
"Mandela Barnes already has a strong record of leading the fight for progressive economic policy, criminal justice reform, and healthcare, both in the State Assembly and as the national director of a coalition for state legislators nationwide, and tonight's victory makes him one step closer to leading the fight for inclusive populist political change across Wisconsin as its next Lieutenant Governor.
"After eight long years of attacks on workers and giveaways to the wealthy and powerful under Scott Walker, Mandela Barnes will be a breath of working families-focused fresh air near the very top of the ticket this November. Democracy for America has been honored to have Mandela's back in in this primary and we're looking forward to doing everything we can to make him Wisconsin's next Lieutenant Governor this Fall." -- Jim Dean, Chair, Democracy for America
