The following news release is from LPAC. The views and opinions expressed are those of LPAC.
Today LPAC, the first of its kind lesbian political action committee, contributed nearly $112,000 to EMILY’s List WOMEN VOTE! to defend Rep. Tammy Baldwin in her November election against anti-woman, anti-gay Tommy Thompson. The money will go toward buying television ads to educate voters in Wisconsin about Thompson’s record as a DC insider more beholden to corporate interests than Wisconsin families. The buy began to air on August 17 and will continue through August 26, on broadcast and cable television in Milwaukee, LaCrosse, Wausau, and Green Bay.
“Tammy Baldwin embodies everything LPAC stands for. She has a history of protecting women’s rights and expanding issues of social justice. Rep. Baldwin is a staunch advocate for reproductive rights and wrote bills to expand both breast cancer screenings and hate crime laws, as well as measures to eliminate workplace discrimination,” said LPAC Chair Sarah Schmidt.
