Written by

Tammy Baldwin, member of the congress and candidate to the Wisconsin senator seat in 2012, would like to become the first lesbian senator.

Tammy Baldwin, who is currently the only lesbian in the congress, wrote in an e-mail:

"I can’t wait to take my fight to the Senate: a fight to grow our economy, protect seniors, force Wall Street to clean up its act, and bring our troops home from Afghanistan. And I can’t wait to see you on the trail as we bring our campaign to every corner of Wisconsin."

She added: "I know that, in this campaign, we’ll be up against some powerful special interests. But I’ve beaten the odds before. All my life, the naysayers have told me that I can’t win because I’m a progressive…because I’m a woman…even because I’m a lesbian. And I’ve proven them wrong because I’ve had rock-solid supporters like you standing with me."

Opposite her, Mark Neumann, republican with the anti-gay remarks.
