Democrats are scrambling to hang on to their majorities in the House and the Senate.
That fight grew into an even more uphill battle.
Now Joe Biden is terrified that you will see these two videos before the election.
Republicans only need to flip one seat to win the majority in the Senate.
Democrats hope to thwart those plans by playing offense in races with Republican incumbents.
One of those GOP-held seats is in Wisconsin where two-term Republican Senator Ron Johnson is facing off against Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes.
Barnes led in early polling, but in 2016 Johnson did not lead in a single poll and still won.
In this race Johnson is making crime a centerpiece issue.
Johnson tweeted out that Barnes and Wisconsin’s Democrat Governor Tony Evers released 270 murderers and attempted murderers from prison.
“Tony Evers & Mandela Barnes have released 270 murderers and attempted murderers from prison. They are now back on Wisconsin streets,” Johnson wrote on social media. “The radical soft-on-crime policies of Tony Evers and Mandela Barnes threaten the safety of all Wisconsin communities.”
Just how vicious and dangerous were the murderers Evers and Barnes let out of jail early?
One of them was convicted of shooting his wife and chopping her head off.
Wisconsin Right Now reported:
How brutal are these killers? Carl Beletsky, then 39, of Oconomowoc, shot and decapitated his bank manager wife, Kathleen, with a large kitchen knife and then tried to burn her head in a wood-burning stove in 1982. Newspaper articles from the time say that Beletsky, who was worried she was going to leave him, placed Kathleen’s headless body in the trunk of a car, dumped the body in a cornfield, and then went to drink liquor.
Videos of Barnes proudly declaring his support for emptying prisons and defunding the police are sure to cause Democrats problems in Wisconsin.

Crime is a major issue in Wisconsin.
Evers and Barnes sat back and let Black Lives Matter terrorists burn Kenosha to the ground in August 2020 after police shot knife-wielding accused rapist Jacob Blake after Blake attempted to kidnap his children.
Last Christmas a black nationalist terrorist murdered six and injured 62 when he plowed his SUV through a Christmas parade in Waukesha.
The suspect was released out of prison thanks to bail reform policies supported by a Democrat district attorney.
Democrats lost seats in Congress in the 2020 election thanks to their support for defunding the police.
Now the fate of Joe Biden’s agenda hinges on Democrats maintaining control of the Senate so at the very least Chuck Schumer can confirm Biden’s radical socialist nominees.
Mandela Barnes’ support for setting violent criminals loose on the streets and defunding the police could complicate the Democrats’ effort to hang on to the Senate.
