Washington, D.C. – The Barnes Brigade consists of defund-the-police-supporting, Israel-hating, socialism-loving radicals.
He has headlined events for groups (like the Center for Popular Democracy) that aim to defund the police and abolish ICE. He is endorsed by groups that popularized the Green New Deal. He is influenced by far-Left politicians like AOC, Elizabeth Warren, Ilhan Omar and Ruben Gallego. And he takes direction from special interest groups.
Statement from NRSC Chairman Rick Scott: “Mandela Barnes continues to support groups who hate Israel, hate our police and hate America. He will only fight for extreme socialist policies and that is why he will lose in November.”
