[Madison, WI]—Senator Tammy Baldwin spent President Trump’s first week in office rejecting reform and defending the Washington status quo.

“At every opportunity this week Senator Tammy Baldwin rejected reform and embraced the Washington status quo that Wisconsinites opposed last November,” said Alec Zimmerman, spokesman for the Republican Party of Wisconsin. “Senator Baldwin is so out of touch she would rather cozy up to special interests than fight on behalf of hard-working Wisconsin families.”
