Bringing the 'win' back in Baldwin

Tammy Baldwin

Bringing the 'win' back in Baldwin

In a Wisconsin election season filled with closely fought races, the question of who should represent our Second Congressional District is an easy one to answer. Through her consistent performance in Congress and commitment to representing her constituents, Rep. Tammy Baldwin has earned our endorsement for reelection.

 

As a representative of one of Wisconsin's most Democratic Congressional districts, Baldwin performs an often overlooked yet fundamental element of her job: voting and fighting for the opinions of her constituents, and pursuing legislation in support of our best interests. Her consistent voting record of supporting equal rights, health care reform, and lowering education costs speak to the needs and wants of the Second district.

Baldwin's challenger, businessman Chad Lee, enters the race as a first-time political candidate stressing his business background and humble origins. Though his campaign appears sincere, his stances have revealed a lack of substance. Lee has stressed that his business experience will provide a refreshing departure from the career politicians currently holding office in Washington. But this attitude fails to address the fact that success in the private sector does not directly translate to success in politics. His lack of political experience coupled with what has revealed itself as a lack of understanding for today's most important issues, greatly inhibits his ability to represent Wisconsin in Congress.

 

Lee's greatest roadblock to election victory, however, stems from the fact that Baldwin simply doesn't need a replacement. Baldwin is an active member of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, as well as the House Judiciary Committee. Her voting record has maintained consistency, and she continues to serve as a voice of reason in an ever more divided and polarized House of Representatives. Her performance to date has solidified justification for reelection, and the Daily Cardinal supports her pursuit of a seventh term.
