Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes announced on Monday that he has reached over 100,000 donations in his campaign in the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate.

In his press release, Barnes said that the average donation to his campaign was less than $50, claiming that he is “the only candidate in the race with the grassroots momentum to defeat Ron Johnson.” He also noted that he raised more than $4 million for his campaign to date.

I’m so proud to have earned the support of so many workers, teachers, parents, students, and farmers who understand that together we have a lot more in common with each other than we do with any out-of-touch millionaire politician,” Barnes said.
