Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.), running to take retiring Sen. Herb Kohl (D-Wis.)'s seat, has launched her first ad, Roll Call reports, and it focuses on Wisconsin paper industry jobs, sanctions on China and bipartisanship.
Baldwin has no primary challenger, whereas Republicans -- including former Gov. Tommy Thompson (R-Wis.), who has fared the best against Baldwin in early polling -- will have a primary fight.
Other Republicans running include Wisconsin State Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald, former U.S. Rep. Mark Neumann, and businessman Eric Hovde, and the primary election is Aug. 14.
If elected, Baldwin would be the first out LGBT senator.
