Wisconsin Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes (D) has scheduled an announcement for tomorrow, at which he will almost certainly declare his US Senate candidacy. In the Democratic primary, he will face state Treasurer Sarah Godlewski, state Senator Chris Larson (D-Milwaukee), Outagamie County Executive Tom Nelson, and Milwaukee Bucks basketball club senior executive and former Obama White House aide Alex Lasry to this point in the Democratic primary. It remains unclear if Sen. Ron Johnson (R) will seek re-election. Regardless of the incumbent’s eventual political decision, the Wisconsin Senate race will feature a competitive primary and general election cycle.
