GREEN BAY — U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin wrapped up her In Your Corner Tour, a week-long statewide swing to highlight the issues at the heart of communities across Wisconsin.

“As I traveled across Wisconsin on this tour, I met Wisconsinites who want someone in Washington who is in their corner, not in the pocket of powerful special interests,” said Tammy Baldwin. “Whether it’s running a dairy farm, working in a paper mill or combating the addiction crisis in their community, Wisconsinites are working hard to move Wisconsin forward and they should have someone in Washington who is working hard for them, not special interests.”  

In Racine, Tammy kicked-off the tour with local African-American business leaders at Legacy on Main. 

In Kenosha, Tammy joined local community leaders and organizers in Washington Park.

In Janesville, Tammy met with Wisconsin workers rebuilding our roads at a construction site on I-90.
