The Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC aligned with Republicans in the U.S. Senate, is out with a second round of ads this week critical of positions Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Mandela Barnes has taken on public safety. According to reports filed with the FEC, the super PAC has spent nearly $5.1 million on independent expenditures over the past two weeks, including over $3.1 million on TV.

The ad claims Barnes would “eliminate cash bail, setting accused criminals free into the community before trial.” The ad says Barnes supports defunding the police even with high rates of shootings, murders, robberies, car jackings, and attacks on police.

The narrator concludes the ad, “Mandela Barnes. He stands with them, not us.”
