In 2012, Tammy was elected to the U.S. Senate defeating former Wisconsin Governor and Bush Administration Cabinet Secretary Tommy Thompson. She is Wisconsin’s first woman to serve in the US Senate and is the first openly gay member elected to the Senate.
Tammy Baldwin is devoted to fighting for Wisconsin families and has been her whole life. Tammy was born and raised in the Badger State and in Wisconsin’s proud progressive tradition, she has a strong record of taking on corporate special interests and fighting for the middle class.

WASHINGTON, DC - Last week, the Wisconsin GOP tried to steal a seat on the state’s Supreme Court by refusing to move our election or provide safe voting options during this unprecedented pandemic.

Last night, we found out they lost.

vote-47-mbNo one should have been forced to choose between their safety and their right to vote — and far too many Wisconsinites were unable to participate in this election. It was a disgraceful act of voter suppression on the part of Republicans.

Republicans will continue their dangerous voter suppression tactics unless we act, and the best way for us to stop them is to demand universal vote-by-mail.

That’s why I’m asking you to sign my petition demanding universal vote-by-mail be included in the next coronavirus relief bill to avoid this sort of disaster from happening again. We must do better in November.

Thank you to the Wisconsinites who showed their resiliency in last week’s election. We won’t forget you.

Stay safe and healthy.

— Tammy

scott-walkerMADISON - Wisconsinites have a celebrated history of progressivism. We value civic engagement and activism. We believe in the power of regular people and government’s role in improving and protecting the lives of citizens.

But after six years under Governor Walker’s failed leadership, many of the values Wisconsinites hold dear are being eroded and undermined.

Today we want you to tell us which of Governor Walker’s policies you think are the most harmful to Wisconsinites.

Was it his attempts to...

  1. Rollback worker protections
  2. Make it more difficult to vote
  3. Infringe on a woman’s right to make her own healthcare decisions
  4. Cut funding from our public schools and universities
  5. Weaken government accountability measures
  6. Other
  7. All of the above

It’s no secret that Governor Walker’s drastic departure from Wisconsin’s progressive traditions has negatively impacted people across our state. But if we’re going to return to our roots and fight back against his extreme right-wing agenda, we need you to speak out.

Make sure you answer our quick survey and let us know which of Governor Walker’s policies affected you the most.

Thank you for taking the time to fill out our survey.
