Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) has further solidified her position as the presumptive Democratic nominee in Wisconsin for Senate, with the campaign announcing Monday the endorsement of the person she hopes to replace — retiring Democratic Sen. Herb Kohl.
“Tammy Baldwin has served our state and our country with conviction, compassion and common sense, and she will be an excellent senator who will make Wisconsin proud,” said Kohl, in a statement released by the Baldwin campaign. “We can all trust Tammy to stand up for the people of our great state and for the values we all share.”
On the Republican side, there is a heated primary between former Gov. Tommy Thompson, former Rep. Mark Neumann, and current state Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald. The primary will be held on August 14.
