[Madison, WI] — Today, Senator Tammy Baldwin announced that she would not vote to confirm President Trump’s nominee for the next Director of the CIA, Gina Haspel. Haspel is one of the most uniquely qualified persons ever to be nominated to be Director of the CIA, and would be the first female director of the agency.
“While the security of our country hangs in the balance, Senator Baldwin is putting petty Washington politics ahead of the safety of Wisconsin families,” said Alec Zimmerman, spokesman for the Republican Party of Wisconsin. “Gina Haspel has spent her career fighting to keep our nation safe from threats around the globe. American lives are at stake and Senator Baldwin would rather oppose this incredibly qualified nominee to pander to her far-left base than protect our country.”
