50 days from Election Day, veterans hit social media to share why they’re supporting Leah for Senate
Brookfield, Wis. — The Veterans Choose Leah coalition began its #50days50vets campaign Monday. Each day from now until Election Day, another Wisconsin veteran will share a video sharing why he or she is supporting Leah Vukmir for U.S. Senate, and how Senator Baldwin let them down.
Tom Rocque, U.S. Army veteran, kicked off the videos saying:
“I support Leah Vukmir for Senate. As members of the military, we all know how important it is to be able to rely on one another. Tammy Baldwin has proven to us time and time again that we cannot rely on her when it counts. She let down our brothers and sisters over at the Tomah VA. Let’s not forget that this year.”
Senator Baldwin let our veterans down by hiding a report uncovering over-prescribing practices at the Tomah VA. After hiding it to protect President Obama and her own political career, the report was still released. To cover up her failures, Baldwin then tried to bribe a staffer for her silence, eventually threw that staffer under the bus and hired Hillary Clinton’s lawyer to try and make the problem go away.
