Aiming for History in Wisconsin

Tammy BaldwinPost submitted by Dan Rafter, Former HRC Associate Director of Communications

Polls in Wisconsin are open for about two-and-a-half more hours – and in those two-and-a-half hours, voters have an opportunity to make history and elect Tammy Baldwin. Tammy would be the first openly LGBT person to serve in the U.S. Senate, and HRC has made electing Tammy a top priority.

Tammy is no stranger to shattering glass ceilings – and during her time as a member of the U.S. House, she’s been a consistent advocate for equality. Tammy’s the founder and co-chair of the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus. She’s also the first and currently only out lesbian elected to Congress.

Her opponent’s campaign has attacked Baldwin based solely on her sexual orientation. Karl Rove has poured millions into bashing her. Through it all, Tammy has connected with Wisconsin voters and the race has remained competitive. Stay with the HRC blog tonight for the latest on Tammy’s race in Wisconsin.
