Another day, another stupid tweet from Kamala Harris.
When @TammyBaldwin was elected in 2012, she made history — twice — as both the first openly LGBTQ person elected to the Senate in US history, and as WI's first woman elected to the Senate. We can't afford to lose a fighter like her. https://t.co/BbfCVcPDl6

The GOP seems to be determined to take out Sen. Baldwin this fall. According to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, over $10 million in outside money has already been spent by Republican groups against Sen. Baldwin or for candidates running against her, while only a little over $1 million has been spent on Baldwin.
While the challenges against her in this year’s race are formidable, she still has a path to victory given her incumbency advantage, increased Democratic enthusiasm to vote, and Wisconsin voters’ disapproval of Trump. That said, this year’s race will certainly still be a fight. We sat down with Sen. Baldwin and Griffin to discuss the unprecedented level of campaign money being spent against Sen. Baldwin, the political landscape for LGBTQ+ candidates, and why HRC now has a full-time team on the ground in Wisconsin.
We dunno, maybe the GOP wants to beat her because she’s a Democrat?
Kamala, this was low even for you.
The title of this article is SO ridiculous. People want a different Senator because of their positions.

Democrats are facing a serious narrative issue this fall. It’s hard to run against a thriving economy, more money in Americans’ pockets, all while openly pushing to raise taxes on 80% of Americans.
They need some gimmick.
Republicans want a Democrat out of office (like every election). You are the only one bringing in sexuality.

Maybe post a real source. #fakenews

Kamala wouldn’t know a real source if it fell out of the sky, landed on her face and started to wiggle.
Sure we can

Just love how you stir crap. Republicans could care less about who she is sleeping with. It’s about the horrible policies. Socialism and Capitalism don’t play well together.

It’s all she knows.
Such a carefully framed headline. It makes the assertion that her sexual preference is why reps. Want her out…how about her terrible agenda? You are so dishonest…

She really is.
It has nothing to do with her sexual orientation ..it is a political race..?

To be fair, identity politics is about all the Democrats know how to campaign on, so in their weird world, this makes absolute sense.
So being LGBTQ is a qualification? Don't remember seeing that in the Constitution. Identity politics is nonsense
