Baldwin focuses while GOP opponents squabble

7 May , 2018   Video

While the GOP Senate candidates and their teams are busy squabbling (online and in the press) over what a “true conservative” is, the incumbent Democrat is talking about key issues that matter to 100% of the state’s voters.

Quibble if you think she’s ignoring her own problems on this issue while exploiting a personal situation for political gain if you want, but you can’t deny two things. 1) She’s reaching out and delivering her message to a wider audience than the GOP candidates are; and, 2) This is a powerful ad.

I’ve worked against and voted against Tammy Baldwin since she first ran for local government in Madison. But you can’t deny she’s a savvy campaigner who is almost always on message.

[BROOKFIELD, WISC…] On a special episode of Outside the Bubble, Edge Messaging’s Brian Fraley talks with Kevin Thompson of Hogs for Heroes and veterans Scott Kruchten and Brian Kvitek, who both received motorcycles courtesy of this unique charity.
