National media reported over the weekend that U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Madison, is among those who have been interviewed by Biden’s team in the presumptive nominee’s search for a running mate.

Baldwin, the first openly gay candidate elected to the U.S. Senate, won her 2018 reelection by more than 10 points in one of the top swing states this fall and has a national fundraising network.
