Baldwin Hits Thompson in Convention Speech

And on gay rights, Baldwin said: "The Wisconsin I know believes that with each passing year and each generation our country must become more equal, not less." But it was Baldwin's attacks on Thompson -- and tying Thompson to those other Republicans -- that were most notable. Thompson, she said, "cashed in on his special interest connections" in Washington, "and never really came back." The crowd, which booed lustily for Ryan and Walker, offered little reaction to the first mention of Thompson, however. Baldwin's tack diverged from Elizabeth Warren, the Senate nominee in Massachusetts who did not mention her opponent, Sen. Scott Brown, in her speech Wednesday night.
