The Coordinated Campaign Candidates:
Tammy Baldwin for Senate - https://www.tammybaldwin.com/
“I didn’t run to make history. I ran to make a difference. A difference in the lives of families struggling to find work and pay their bills. A difference in the lives of students worried about debt. And seniors worried about their retirement security. A difference in the lives of veterans who fought for us and need someone fighting for them and their families. A difference in the lives of entrepreneurs trying to build a business and working people trying to build some economic security.” –Tammy Baldwin
In the Senate, Tammy is putting Wisconsin first and doing right by working families across the state. People know that Tammy will sit down with anyone, no matter their party, and she’ll take on anyone, no matter how powerful, if it means getting the job done for Wisconsinites.
Tammy is building a stronger Made in Wisconsin manufacturing economy by championing Buy American rules, confronting unfair trade deals, and helping create good-paying Wisconsin jobs. She is working across party lines to make sure our veterans are supported with the health care, jobs, and community support that they have earned and deserve. And when some in Washington pushed partisan repeal efforts that would have ripped health care away from millions of Americans, Tammy led the fight to protect our health care. Tammy is not letting up and she’s continuing to push for affordable health care for every Wisconsinite and bipartisan action to address the opioid epidemic.
Special interests want Washington to keep working for them, not Wisconsin. As a Senator, Tammy has stood up to the powerful and wealthy who want to keep the system rigged in their favor by holding Wall Street accountableand taking on big pharmaceutical corporationsthat jack-up the prices of prescription drugs. So it’s no surprise that this year, corporate interests, billionaire megadonors, and shady Super PACs have made Tammy a top priority and have flooded Wisconsin with millions in outside spending against her. But no matter how much secret money these special interests spend, Tammy will continue doing right by Wisconsinites and work to reduce the influence of special interest money in our government and our elections.
Tammy currently serves on the Senate Appropriations Committee, the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee, and the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee. For more on Tammy’ record of putting Wisconsin first, click here.
Josh Kaul for Attorney General - https://www.joshkaul.org/
Josh has spent much of his career working to keep families safe and to protect the right to vote.
Josh served as a federal prosecutor in Baltimore, one of America’s most violent cities. There, Josh worked closely with law enforcement on complex investigations and saw the impact that crime can have. He prosecuted murderers, gang members, and drug traffickers, taking dangerous criminals off the street and making communities more secure.
When Josh came home to Wisconsin to raise a family, he took on a new challenge: protecting our right to vote. In recent years, state legislatures around the country have made it more difficult to vote in a variety of ways—from reducing early voting to eliminating options for registering to vote. Josh has gone to court to fight back against these laws that restrict access to the ballot box.
Josh grew up in Oshkosh and Fond du Lac, where he attended public schools. He played fullback on his high school football team and first base on the baseball team. Josh’s mom, Peg Lautenschlager, spent much of her career working as a prosecutor, and his step-dad, Bill Rippl, was a police officer.
Josh went to college at Yale, where he met his wife, Lindsey. He majored in history and economics and graduated with honors. He then attended Stanford Law School, where he served as President of the Stanford Law Review.
Josh began his legal career as a law clerk to Judge Michael Boudin, who was then the Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. After his clerkship, Josh worked for Jenner & Block in Washington, D.C.
Josh and Lindsey are the proud parents of two young boys, Simon and Henry.
