[Madison, WI]— In a desperate attempt to defend the Washington status quo, Senator Baldwin engaged in historic partisan obstruction yesterday in a failed attempt to block President Trump’s Nominee for Supreme Court Justice, Judge Neil Gorsuch, from the bench. After breaking her word to Wisconsin by saying she would give Gorsuch “fair consideration” then opposing him less than 48 hours later, it is no surprise that Senator Baldwin vowed to continue her political games up until today’s final vote.
“Senator Baldwin’s desperate attempts to defend the status quo with historic partisan obstruction of a Supreme Court nominee show just how out of touch she is with Wisconsinites who voted for change in Washington last November,” said Alec Zimmerman, spokesman for the Republican Party of Wisconsin. “After nearly two decades in Washington, Senator Baldwin has shown she would rather side with her fellow liberal elites than with hard-working Wisconsin families.”
