Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin, a 2012 candidate for Wisconsin’s open U.S. Senate seat, will conduct a discussion with students Tuesday, April 10 from 2-3 p.m. in the Kraemer Room of the Warch Campus Center. Baldwin is visiting campus at the invitation of the College Democrats.

Baldwin has represented Wisconsin’s 2nd Congressional District since 1999, becoming the first woman elected to Congress from Wisconsin. During her tenure in Congress, she has advocated for universal health care, veteran’s benefits, clean energy technology, renewable fuels, civil rights and equality issues, including LGBT equality and environmental protections, among others.

Baldwin is currently the only Democratic candidate running for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Senator Herb Kohl, D-Milwaukee, who is retiring after serving four terms.
