MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - U.S. Senator-elect Tammy Baldwin was planning to talk this afternoon with Wisconsin’s other senator.
Republican Ron Johnson reached out to the Democrat Baldwin in a statement today. He said he’s ready to collaborate with Baldwin to quote, “help Wisconsinites grapple with federal red tape, promote our great state, and develop real solutions to address the many challenges facing America.”
Baldwin was among the most liberal members of the U.S. House during her 14-year tenure there – and Johnson has been rated by some as among the most conservative, ever since he unseated Democrat Russ Feingold two years ago.
In an interview with the AP, Baldwin said she would stress an agenda to make manufacturing stronger both in the state and the nation.
