Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) on Thursday excoriated Republican state lawmakers in Wisconsin for their last-minute power grab after a Democrat was elected governor.

I do believe that the legislature is overreaching and really just disrespecting the voters of my state,” the senator said.

She added later, referring to House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), who is retiring from that chamber soon: “I hope that Speaker Ryan is still as invested as he ever was in the success of Wisconsin, so I think he absolutely should speak up about this.”
