Green Bay (WFRV) - On the last night of the Democratic National Convention Charlotte, North Carolina, Wisconsin U.S. Representative Tammy Baldwin, gave perhaps the biggest speech of her career.
Baldwin asked voters to buy into the Wisconsin motto of "Forward" and to send President Obama back for another term in Washington, DC.
Tammy Baldwin walked to the podium and wasted little time telling delegates who shouldn't be elected to the White House - Republicans Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. The Wisconsin Congresswoman says both men support tax cuts for the rich and less funding for the poor. A philosophy that she says goes directly against the "Wisconsin way."
"We believe that if we're going to prosper, everyone has to have a fair shot," said Tammy Baldwin."Everyone has to do their fair share."
Taking advantage of the national spotlight, Baldwin also spoke about her own upcoming U.S. Senate race against Republican Tommy Thompson. Congresswoman Baldwin called him an out of touch, Washington insider.
"Our former governor, who went to Washington, cashed in on his special interest and never really came back."
Baldwin told delegates she stands with President Obama, in his fight to make sure Wall Street plays by the rules; that both believe in creating jobs in the U.S. instead of shipping them overseas; and that equality for all is a top priority.
"Our President has made historic progress towards equality. He repealed don't ask, don't tell so that no American ever again has to lie about who they are in order to serve the country we love."
"Forward with the middle class. Forward on the path to prosperity. Forward with President Obama."
