Vukmir tabbed to run against US Senator Baldwin; brace yourself, this one will be nasty and ugly
This is going to be nasty. Now that the partisan primary elections are over, buckle your belts because the already heated battle for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Tammy Baldwin will get hotter.
On Tuesday, the Republicans tabbedf State Senator Leah Vukmir to run against Baldwin. Vukmir, from Brookfield, defeated Kevin Nicholson, 217,023 to 190,040. Vukmir is a former state chair for ALEC, the ultra conservative group given a lot of credit for the Republican assault on collective bargaining (Act10) and the party’s zeal for replacing Obamacare.
Like Donald Trump? You’ll love Vukmir.
Baldwin told her supporters in Berlin last month that her seat in Washington has been targeted by the Republicans and that more money from outside sources is being spent against her. Baldwin is shown in the photo on the left with Frank Buress, who is running for the 41st Assembly District. The two were at a Baldwin rally last month in Berlin.
A recent article “Wisconsin State Journal” stated, “Meanwhile, Baldwin, D-Madison, has faced a negative ad blitz that so far dwarfs any other U.S. Senate incumbent seeking re-election this fall. Outside groups have spent more than four times as much on negative ads against her than against any other senator, the Center for Responsive Politics data show.” View entire article.
And this was before the real battle started today. Hang on, it, because based on what we have seen so far, it is going to get nastier and uglier. Such is the state of politics today in Trump World.
