“Senator Baldwin is a champion for Buy America, which would be a huge boon for America’s economy,” said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Communications Director Brandon Weathersby. “She has reached across the aisle and gained the support of Republicans, including the leader of the Republican Party, President Donald Trump. Hopefully, Speaker Paul Ryan will join his President and won’t oppose this job-creating policy again.”
