MADISON, Wis. — Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler released the following statement on Tammy Baldwin’s announcement that she will seek a third term representing Wisconsin in the U.S. Senate:
“It’s a great day in Wisconsin when Tammy Baldwin announces that she’s seeking a third term. No one works harder for Wisconsin families than Tammy Baldwin. She fights every single day to bring Made in America jobs back to Wisconsin, to protect our veterans and the healthcare they’ve earned, to take on Big Pharma and greedy corporations trying to gouge prices on life-saving prescription drugs, and to restore the freedom to choose in Wisconsin and nationwide.
“Wisconsin Republicans aren’t going to stop their extremist attacks on our freedoms and our democracy any time soon. We know their ultra-MAGA billionaire allies are going to pour millions of dollars into this race to try to elect whichever radical extremist piques their fancy. But there’s a reason so many Republican politicians are hiding under a rug instead of running for U.S. Senate: they know that Wisconsinites trust Tammy Baldwin. The Democratic Party of Wisconsin is thrilled at the opportunity to put everything we’ve got into reelecting Senator Baldwin in 2024.”
