Baldwin blasts Walker at Wisconsin Democratic convention

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin says Republican Gov. Scott Walker has compromised the life of Wisconsin residents to advance his own ambitions.

Baldwin blasted Walker on Friday night at the Wisconsin Democratic Party convention. Baldwin said Walker has proposed devastating cuts in his budget and has restricted unions and women's rights in the state.

Baldwin listed items that she said Wisconsin had valued before Walker was elected. Among them were the state's natural resources, workers' rights and abortion rights. Attendees loudly booed as she talked about Walker and his likely presidential campaign.

A Walker spokeswoman didn't immediately respond to a request for comment Friday night.
