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.”
