On the issues: Barr has said his main focus is putting a stop to “bad” bills. “I don’t think folks understand how many bad pieces of legislation get put forth. My top priority is stopping these bad ideas that take our freedom away.”
What’s next: He faces Democrat Clifton Marshall in the Nov. 3 general election.
