Mandela Barnes is a 31-year-old former State Representative and community organizer from Milwaukee, WI
He was born in the 53206 ZIP Code, Wisconsin’s poorest and the nation’s most incarcerated ZIP Code. The difference for him was opportunity. Coming from a union family, Mandela is running to restore and expand opportunity across Wisconsin, for now, and for future generations.
“I’m thrilled to have been endorsed by Win Back Your State in my race for Lieutenant Governor. Over the past 8 years, we have seen tremendous economic stagnation and rising economic inequality in Wisconsin. I believe we can once again be a state defined by strong public schools, a clean environment, quality and affordable healthcare, and an economy that works for working people. I look forward to helping to make that happen as part of our new Democratic administration.”
