MADISON (WKOW) -- State Representative Mark Pocan's (D-Madison) released the following statement on Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin's announcement that she will run for the U.S. senate.
"Tammy Baldwin is a proven fighter for Wisconsin's middle class and working families, and she will be a terrific champion for our shared values in the US Senate. Over the course of the past two decades, I've had the pleasure to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Tammy, having served with her on the Dane County Board and holding her former seat in the State Assembly.
"During her career, Tammy has demonstrated time and time again that she is a powerful advocate for the middle-class and our seniors. We've fought many of the same fights rooted in our deeply held belief that everyone deserves a voice in our government, not just those who can afford to buy one.
"I've been proud to call Tammy my Assembly Representative, my Congresswoman and most importantly, my friend. I wish her all the best as she enters this next chapter in her life and political career."
