As expected, Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes (D) yesterday declared his candidacy for the Senate in next year’s campaign pledging to “change the game” while attacking Sen. Ron Johnson (R) as not delivering for his constituency. Already in the Democratic primary are state Treasurer Sarah Godlewski, state Senator Chris Larson (D-Milwaukee), Outagamie County Executive Tom Nelson, and Milwaukee Bucks basketball team senior executive and former Obama White House aide Alex Lasry. Sen. Johnson has not yet said if he will seek a third term.
