Tommy Takes Low Road Against Tammy Baldwin
Former Gov. Tommy Thompson of Wisconsin is taking the low road in his race for Senate against Rep. Tammy Baldwin.
Thompson’s political director just sent out an e-mail of a 2010 video of Baldwin at a gay pride festival.
Brian Nemoir snarkily said: "Clearly, there's no one better positioned to talk 'heartland values' than Tammy," as WisPolitics and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel have reported.
In her 2010 race for Congress, Baldwin’s Republican opponent, Chad Lee, ran a TV commercial against her using part of this video.
In her victory speech after that election, Baldwin denounced the ugly personal attacks that are so much a part of contemporary political campaigns.
