Tammy Baldwin Supports Recall of Scott Walker

October 11, 2011

As Wisconsin Democrats mount another recall campaign in an attempt to oust Republican Gov. Scott Walker from office, Rep. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., said she's fully behind the recall effort.

"There is deep frustration and dissatisfaction by the people of Wisconsin with this Governor," Baldwin said in a statement. "Everyday citizens are now forming a grassroots movement to exercise their rights under state law to trigger a recall. I will stand with those who stand with middle class families, and with the people who want their voices heard over the powerful special interests."

"I'm running for US Senate because we must rebuild our economy, and that means strong education and a commitment to job creation -- not more special tax giveaways for the super-rich and powerful special interests," she continued.

One of the most liberal members of Congress according to National Journal rankings, Baldwin has been attempting to appeal to the broader Wisconsin electorate for the Senate campaign. Siding with the recall helps her with the Democratic base, but it's an open question whether less-partisan voters will embrace the state party's efforts.

Meanwhile, Wisconsin state Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald announced Tuesday that he is running for the Senate, joining a crowded Republican field that includes former Wisconsin governor Tommy Thompson and former congressman Mark Neumann.
