Tammy Baldwin faces four big-name Republicans in Senate race

MADISON -- Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin is running for Wisconsin's U.S. Senate seat, and is the only Democrat in the running. She does not face a primary, but will face one of four big-name Republicans this fall.

"There's two things that I hear over and over again. One is real frustration with the disconnect between the debates in Washington D.C. and the partisan gamesmanship. We want someone who is going to fight for us, not for special interests. The other thing I hear is how much people are struggling in this economy," Baldwin said.

The Republicans running for U.S. Senate are Tommy Thompson, Mark Neumann, Jeff Fitzgerald, and Businessman Eric Hovde.

The GOP primary is August 14th, and the general election is November 6th - the same day as the presidential election.
