Tammy Baldwin Shows Why She’s A Serious Senate Contender (Video)

Tammy Baldwin Shows Why She’s A Serious Senate Contender (Video)

 

EMILY’s List just announced a new on-line and television ad buy in Milwaukee, Green Bay and Wausau targeting women voters in support of Democratic Wisconsin US Senate candidate Tammy Baldwin in a race that grows more competitive for Democrats each day.

“Tammy Baldwin is a strong, progressive Democrat who is committed to standing up for middle class families.” said Stephanie Schriock, President of EMILY’s List. “Voters in Wisconsin want a candidate who will work for them instead of for special interests, and I know that Tammy’s impressive record of doing what’s best for her constituents will lead her to victory in November.”

And on a day when the House of Representatives votes again to repeal health care reform, Baldwin took the the floor to show the kind of leader she is by explaining how for her, and so many Americans health care is an important political issue that deserves better than partisan gamesmanship.

Right now most polling has Baldwin in a statistical tie with the two Republican frontrunners. This latest performance and the strong ad presence thanks to the EMILY’s List buy will keep this race interesting. Baldwin has built her career defending the middle class and Wisconsin families and as a US Senator she’s poised to do even more.

We could use Tammy Baldwin in Congress so if you have a couple extra bucks lying around under seat cushions you might consider contributing to her campaign like I have.

Adam S- really, a parasite?! You must be looking in the mirror or directing your comment toward Republicans like Boehner and Cantor.

I would vote for Tammy if I lived in WI!!

Adam S - you have almost 7000 butterfly credits, none of which you've ever awarded to help anyone else.
Do you not understand that everytime you come on Care2 and make your stupid, inane statements that you just strengthen the rest of us...that it just connects the rest of us in a common cause? You're a fool.

Tammy Baldwin will win. She is FOR the Affordable Care Act and the Buffett rule! Good job, Tammy.

Adam S - I see you're back. No friends but then, you aren't here for friends, are you? How much are you being paid to come on Care2 to spew hate and trash. Do they provide you with info to use? What a joke you are. I'll give you credit for spelling correctly but not grammar!

Vote for Tammy Baldwin!

Tammy is not beholden to the wishes of the corporate America as her Republican opponents are.

Although I do not live in Wisconsin I sent Tammy a modest campaign donation. Please do the same.

Baldwin is a parasite who thinks government can spend our money better than us.

Until relatively recently, I had always been proud of Wisconsin's political contingent and traditions. . . Russ Feingold, Dave Obey, the LaFollettes, etc. I had viewed McCarthy as the exception that proved the rule. But, with Walker and Johnson and the Fitzgeralds, et al. . . . all I can say is thank goodness for Tammy and reassuring Wisconsin citizens that all decency has not been lost.

A shame she has to come from Wisconsin of all places. Well, she can help balance out their governor...

Tammy Baldwin deserves electorate support.
