[Madison, WI]— Senator Tammy Baldwin spent the first 100 days of the Trump Administration obstructing reforms and embracing the Washington status quo. While President Trump made 22 nominations over the course of the first 100 days, Senator Baldwin obstructed by voting against 15 of them, the most of any red-state senator up for reelection in 2018. Instead of fighting for Wisconsin’s hard-working families, Senator Baldwin has decided to play political games wherever she can.
“From her votes against cabinet nominees to breaking her word on Justice Gorsuch, Senator Baldwin has spent the last 100 days embracing the Washington status quo,” said Alec Zimmerman, spokesman for the Republican Party of Wisconsin. “Senator Baldwin is determined to obstruct the reforms that hard-working Wisconsin families voted for last November.”
- Senator Baldwin has opposed more of the president’s nominees than any other Senator up for reelection in a state won by President Trump last November.
- Immediately after Justice Gorsuch’s nomination, Senator Baldwin expressed concern about Justice Gorsuch but had not declared a position, promising that she would “do my job to fully review Justice Gorsuch’s record” and look forward to meeting him. She said she would evaluate whether he will protect Americans’ constitutional rights as she gave “fair consideration to this nomination.”
- Just two days later – without time to review his record, meet with him, submit questions, or otherwise explore his judicial philosophy or positions more deeply – she told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel she would oppose Justice Gorsuch
