Mandela Barnes Talks Out of Both Sides of His Mouth on Vaccine Mandates

Upon Announcement of Biden’s Unconstitutional Federal Overreach, Where Do Senate Democrat Candidates Stand?

[Madison, WI] – Last week, Joe Biden announced his unconstitutional vaccine mandate plan that will punish Wisconsin small businesses and families. After multiple failed attempts to dodge questions on this important topic during yesterday’s edition of WISN’s UpFront, Mandela Barnes eventually gave an answer of half-hearted support while refusing to take a hard stance, saying that “we are getting to the point where we do need to require vaccines.”

While Wisconsin businesses are already struggling to find workers, Joe Biden is threatening to make their labor issues worse. Meanwhile, this federal overreach will also disproportionately affect lower-income and minority Americans. Senator Ron Johnson immediately made clear that he knows that these mandates represent a “trampling of civil liberties;” if Democrats want to take his seat, they owe Wisconsinites a real answer about where they stand. Will Mandela Barnes, Sarah Godlewski, and Alex Lasry fully lend their support to these unconstitutional mandates if elected?

“Mandela Barnes knows that Wisconsinites don’t want the federal government forcing national politics on their personal health decisions, yet he can’t help but cave to Joe Biden in his quest to appease the far-left fringe of his party,” said Republican Party of Wisconsin Communications Director Anna Kelly. “Barnes needs to stand up for Wisconsin small businesses and families instead of toeing the party line.”
