Progressive champion Tammy Baldwin has represented the battleground state of Wisconsin since 2013, following 15 years of service in the House. She holds the twin distinctions of becoming the first openly LGBT+ woman elected to both the House and Senate.
A progressive leader in the Senate, Baldwin has led the way in articulating a values-driven, diplomacy-first vision of American leadership. She vocally protested Benjamin Netanyahu’s threat to annex the West Bank, voted against the Iraq War, and opposed to oppose arms sales to to Saudi Arabia. The senator also backs a raft of progressive priorities domestically, including the Green New Deal, Medicare for All, tighter gun control, and making millionaires and billionaires pay their fair share in tax.
Senator Baldwin serves on the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation and the Senate Appropriations Committee.
Senator Baldwin is a true J Street champion.
In May 2022, Baldwin signed the bicameral Merkley-Stansbury letter pushing back against proposed mass evictions and demolitions in the West Bank communities of Masafer Yatta. She was an original co-sponsor of Senate Resolution 234 in 2019 reaffirming Senate support for a two-state solution, support for Israel’s security, and opposition to settlement expansion and annexation.
Senator Baldwin was an original cosponsor of S.434, the Iran Diplomacy Act of 2021, which advocated for a reentry into President Obama's Iran deal, which verifiably blocked Iran's path to nuclear weapons. In 2020, along with Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, she co-sponsored a war powers resolution to prevent President Trump from initiating an unauthorized military conflict with Iran.
