Tammy Baldwin (D, WI) Says Senate Race Won't Be About Her Sexual Orientation
On Top Magazine ^ | September 8, 2011 | Carolos Santoscoy

Posted on 09/08/2011 10:45:18 AM PDT by Diana in Wisconsin

Openly gay Wisconsin Rep. Tammy Baldwin says her bid for a Senate seat won't be about her sexual orientation, gay weekly the Washington Blade reported.

Baldwin on Tuesday became the first Democrat to formally declare her candidacy for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by retiring Senator Herb Kohl. She is the first openly gay Senate candidate with a viable shot at winning.

During a conference call on Wednesday, Baldwin insisted she's always been open about her sexual orientation, but added that the race will focus on other issues.

“I have always since the beginning of all my adult life been out and honest about my sexual orientation, and I think that voters appreciate the values of honesty and expect integrity in their elected officials.”

The race, Baldwin added, “won't be about me.”

“It will be about the middle-class, the threats that they're facing right now, the struggles that families are experiencing and which candidate for U.S. Senate is going to be the best fighter for them.”

Baldwin, who has never lost a race but remains untested in a statewide election, faces stiff competition from her GOP rivals, former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson and former Wisconsin Rep. Mark Neumann. Neumann officially entered the race last week, while Thompson has signaled he will follow. Early polls show that in a contest with either candidate, Baldwin would lose.

But whether Baldwin's sexual orientation becomes an issue in the race is more up to her GOP rival. Neumann, a two-term congressman, is not a supporter of gay rights. In 1996, he said: “If I were elected God for a day, homosexuality wouldn't be permitted.” Four years later, he walked back the remark a bit, saying he wouldn't want to be God.

Oh, Goody! Then let's make it about her being a Socialist, shall we? LOL!

This is going to be one ugly race between her and Neumann.

If her race for the US senate is not about her being a homosexual, why is she talking about it?

I honestly could care less about Tammy Baldwin being a lesbian. But if anyone thinks that this election is not going to be about her sexual orientation if the Dems think there is an advantage to it, they are living in Fantasyland. If Baldwin is up against a Republican, anyone who votes against her will be an anti-gay bigot. If she loses, it will be because of bigotry.

And that's why she's talking about it right out of the gate. She's setting herself up as the victim. The best thing her Republican opponent could do is to not mention anything about it whatsoever.

Couldn’t care less about her being a lesbian...but man, she sure likes to remind people about it, doesn’t she?

Now then, we don’t need to redistribute the wealth, Tammy, so here is hoping you get your “not about you being homosexual” butt kicked.

A little historic factoid, this is the Joe McCarthy seat, and McCarthy was the last Republican to win it (in 1952). I am currently leaning towards Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald to be our candidate.

“I have always since the beginning of all my adult life been out and honest about my sexual orientation, and I think that voters appreciate the values of honesty and expect integrity in their elected officials.”

The problem this carpet-muncher has is the fact that those voters that never had a problem with her being a queer were in her local Madistan district. That wont be the case when she runs in a statewide election.

Any other democrats going to run against her in the primary? If there were any, they would probably stand a good chance of beating her but they also would be called anti-gay bigots and they don’t want to risk that. I guess she becomes the democratic candidate by default and that’s a good thing because statewide you would hope there are enough normal Wisconsins who will vote against this perverse sodomite. Hopefully an unexpected pickup for Republicans.

That’s the other seat occupied by Ron Johnson, which elected Republican Bob Kasten from 1981-93. We’re talking about the one occupied by Herb Kohl (whose predecessor was Democrat William Proxmire). It last elected a Republican (McCarthy) in 1952 (Proxmire won the special election for McCarthy’s seat after his death in 1957 and he occupied it until his retirement in 1989).

Wrong...

It's really annoying when someone's first word in a post is "wrong", and even more so when they go on to say something that is completely incorrect in an effort to correct someone who was right to begin with.

Well, you see, I hold plenty of prejudice against voting for politicians who don’t show much competence, and have to play identity cards, because frankly, it doesn’t do much good to lead a nation.

so now since she said this if you don’t vote for her it is “homophobia”.

if you SPEAK against her it is a hate crime.

I hope she loses by so much that it straightens her out.

Jeff Fitzgerald is the most closely linked to Governor Scott Walker and his controversial agenda. Walker has won great legislative victories, but at major political cost to himself. IMHO, by the time 2014 comes around, Walker’s popularity will be up once people see the success of his policies. I see the same dynamic for John Kasich in Ohio, Rick Snyder of Michigan, and Rick Scott of FLorida. The downside of this is that none of this will help Fitzgerald in 2012. Maybe we should play it safe in Wisconsin, even if the candidate I refer to is not the ideal conservative.

I tend to agree. While the RATs running Baldwin gives us some more leeway, we can’t afford to nominate who is 5% more conservative than Thompson or Neumann but might get 5% less of the vote due to the state legislature’s baggage.

I believe in rewarding success and Fitzgerald accomplished much. As for the other two, Thompson refused to step up when he was needed to take out Feingold or Kohl (plus he’s too old to begin a Senate career now) and Neumann seems to run for anything and hasn’t won office in what will be 16 years. It’s a no-brainer for me who is the most worthy of the bunch, and I believe that Tammy Baldwin will be a far more polarizing figure than any Republican put up, so I’d rather go with the best.

I haven't choosen a horse to back in most of the Senate races without a GOP incumbent, I don't the candidates well enough to make a recommendation yet. I think it's important freepers look into someone's record before annointing them the conservative choice.

I agree with Feingold out of the race, we don't need Tommy Thompson as the nominee to beat the RAT (and it increasingly seems certain that Tammy Baldwin will be the RAT candidate). Politics1.com doesn't even list Thompson as an announced candidate though (his name isn't bolded). The three names listed are Jeff Fitzgerald, Mark Neumann, and John Schiess. I'll have to look into all of them when I have time. Primaries won't be for a while.

Haven't endorsed Ted Cruz in Texas either... some of his endorsements are troubling like Ron Paul and George P. Bush (if the Bush family likes Cruz, that's a bad sign, especially George P. who is to the left of both his dad and uncle!) There seem to be a wide range of choices here: Glenn Addison, Andrew "Cas" Castanuela, Curt Cleaver, Ted Cruz, David Dewhurst, Mike George, Elizabeth Ames Jones, Nick Latham, Tom Leppert, Lela Pittenger, and David Smith. Though likely it will come down to Dewhurst or Cruz at this point.

Florida's another one where I'm taking a wait and see... seems some conservative have already jumped on the Adam Hasner express. But again, looks like a big field... Akinyemi Agbede, Vern Buchanan, Bill Fisher Jr.,Adam Hasner, Alexander Ilnyckyj, Josue LaRose, George LeMieux, Deon Long, Mike McCalister, Ron McNeil, Craig Miller, Mirand Sharma, and Marielena Stuart. I've always liked Buchanan in Florida(Vern, not Pat!). LeMieux is a former U.S. Senator who had a pretty decent record but the fact he was appointed to the job by the orange menace (Charlie Crist) might doom his chances of being elected in his own right. But I think it's good he took the job and erased memories of Martinez.

Ted Cruz has been endorsed by a whole slew of conservatives; Ron Paul and George P. Bush are not exactly a cross-section of his supporters. I think Cruz is the real deal, and, if elected, that he would become a force to be reconned with in the Senate Judiciary Committe before eventually being appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

In Florida, I like Hasner better than the others. I’m thinking not only of conservative bona fides (which Hasner has in spades), but also the ability to defeat Bill Nelson. I think that Hasner can energize conservatives while simultaneously holding down Nelson’s margins in the Gold Coast, which would provide a real path to victory. Nothing against Buchanan, but I’m not sure that someone who barely beat a liberal woman (by like 500 votes) in 2006 in a Sarasota-based congressional district that is like 5% more Republican than the rest of the state would be as strong a general-election candidate as Hasner. (Actually, my ideal candidate would be conservative firebrand Congressman Allen West, who is very skillful at framing conservative positions in a way that is acceptable to Gold Coast denizens and who could easily raise the money needed to defeat Nelson; I would love for West to run for the Senate and for Hasner to switch to the race in the congressional district that West would abandon.) As for LeMieux, it’s not just that he was appointed to the Senate by the execrable Crist (who I’m sure made some good appointments, just like Ron Paul and George P. Bush sometimes make good endorsements), it’s that LeMieux was Crist’s right-hand man and enabler for years, and I can’t trust him even if his Senate voting record for a year or so wasn’t that bad.

Tommy Thompson should have run in 2004, when his chances of winning were at least 50/50. He was right not to run in 2006 though, when a liberal perfect storm swept the northern tier states.

I’ve not formally sided with Cruz in the Senate race in TX, though I don’t have any particular reason to oppose him and no one else particularly strikes me. Might be a good thing to see how he performs in the Senate before his potential elevation to SCOTUS, for which he has been often mentioned.

As for Florida, I am not seeing a particular candidate to champion. West would be preferable, but he’s not running (probably ill-advised, since short of getting a Cabinet post, he may be hemmed in from moving up), although if Marco Rubio is chosen for VP, Gov. Scott might very well appoint him to the vacancy.

I pity poor LeMieux, because there is a rumor that next month that Crist may formally become a Democrat at a FL party gathering. That won’t help him at all.

Frankly, even ‘04 was a bit too late. He should’ve run in ‘94 (against Kohl) or ‘98 (Feingold), with 2000 at the latest. At this point, he’d be treating the place as a retirement home and we need younger blood. Hell, he should’ve been retiring from the Senate at this point.

I’m inclined to back Cruz in Texas and Hasner in Florida. I don’t trust Peppy LePew either. Though it would be funny to see Crist attacking him if Crist joins the rat party.

I don’t know about Wisconsin. I hope they keep it clean in the primary, Thompson and Neumann seem to be a little pissy with each other.

It would be nice to see that at least some of these candidates were man enough to serve in uniform, but lately that’s been a bridge too far for young men in the GOP who want to run for office.
