Tammy Baldwin is devoted to fighting for Wisconsin families, and has been her whole life. She was born and raised in the Badger State and has a reputation for taking on corporate special interests — she doesn’t let powerful, moneyed groups stand in the way of her fight for the middle class.
In 1998, Wisconsin’s 2nd Congressional District shattered the state’s glass ceiling and elected the state’s first female member of Congress and the nation’s first openly gay challenger to Congress. Shortly after she was first elected, when both parties supported de-regulation of the financial industry, Tammy stood up for Wisconsin taxpayers and voted against letting Wall Street and Big Banks write their own rules. She’s making sure that everyone pays their fair share, sponsoring the Buffett Rule in the House and is ready to take her fight for the middle class to the Senate.
