Brookfield, Wis. – U.S. Senate candidate Leah Vukmir released the following statement Tuesday in reaction to news that Democratic Sens. Joe Donnell of Indiana and Joe Manchin of West Virginia have said that they will support the nomination of Gina Haspel to be the director of the CIA:

“Sen. Baldwin is hiding from the voters and refusing to say how she’ll vote on Gina Haspel. That’s because she knows that Haspel is qualified, but she’s more interested in pandering to her far-left supporters in California and New York than doing what’s right for Wisconsin.

“It’s unacceptable that Sen. Baldwin will not say where she stands on Haspel, and she’s desperate to make sure no one in Wisconsin knows about her extreme liberal voting record. Now that the grassroots of the Republican Party of Wisconsin has endorsed my candidacy, I’m looking forward to exposing her atrocious record in November.”
