Sen. Tammy Baldwin first won election to the US Senate in 2012, defeating former Governor Tommy Thompson to fill retiring Sen. Herb Kohl’s seat. Senator Baldwin is the first openly gay woman elected to Congress and represented Wisconsin’s Madison-based 2nd Congressional District from 1998 to 2012. Prior to serving in Congress, she served in the Wisconsin State Assembly, Madison City Council, Dane County Board of Supervisors, and practiced law for several years.
The Senator is a strong supporter of Israel and the two-state solution. JStreetPAC supported Sen. Baldwin’s last three elections to the House and both elections to the Senate. In 2019, she was one of the original cosponsors of Senate Resolution 234, which reaffirmed Congress’ support for a two-state solution and opposed annexation.
