REALTORS from across Wisconsin join announcement by endorsing Tammy Baldwin

MARINETTE — U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin today announced Business Leaders for Tammy, a coalition of over 100 Wisconsin business leaders from across the state, at events in Marinette and Milwaukee.

In Marinette, Tammy Baldwin was joined at the Wisconsin Maritime Center of Excellence by representatives from Fincantieri Marinette Marine, Strom Worldwide, an LCS supplier, and a local small business owner, to highlight Tammy’s advocacy for the U.S. Navy Littoral Combat Ship.

In Milwaukee, Tammy Baldwin was joined at Fred’s Pub at the Miller Brewery by representatives from MillerCoors, Fairbanks Morse, and a small business owner from Racine.

“Today, I am proud to announce the support of over 100 business leaders from across Wisconsin. Together, we are standing up and demanding that Washington starts working for Wisconsin’s businesses,” said Tammy Baldwin. “Whether it’s taking on unfair trade deals, passing Buy American laws or reforming our tax code, we can continue to drive growth, support job-creating businesses and create a made-in-Wisconsin economy built to last.”

“Our hot production line would go cold without the strong, unyielding support of Senator Tammy Baldwin, who fights every single day for our shipyard and our working families. She leads the fight in the Senate for the Freedom Class Littoral Combat Ship,” said Jan Allman, President, Chief Executive Officer and General Manager, Fincantieri Marinette Marine. “The future of Fincantieri Marinette Marine is the FREMM Frigate.  And we cannot win the competition unless Senator Tammy Baldwin leads the fight. We cannot lose her.  We have to keep her.”

“Senator Baldwin’s leadership has created an environment where businesses like MillerCoors can invest in Wisconsin and create jobs,” said Kelly Grebe, Chief Legal and Corporate Services Officer, MillerCoors. “Next month, the Beer Institute will be honoring Senator Baldwin with the 2018 Beer Champion Service Award. Senator Baldwin will be receiving this award due to her passion, devotion and leadership for our company, our employees, our consumers and the beer industry in Wisconsin.”

Additionally, REALTORS from across Wisconsin joined in launching Business Leaders for Tammy today by announcing their endorsement of Tammy Baldwin:

“We are proud to endorse Senator Tammy Baldwin for her long record of supporting homeownership and private property rights and we look forward to her continued leadership on key real estate issues in the U.S. Senate,” said Jim Schuessler, Wisconsin & National Realtors PAC, REALTOR® with Stark Company Realtors from Madison, Wisconsin. 

In the Senate, Tammy Baldwin has worked across party lines to create a made in Wisconsin economy built to last.

Tammy Baldwin has been an unrivaled leader for Buy American laws, introducing legislation supported by Democrats and Republicans, including President Trump, to boost Wisconsin manufacturing. Tammy Baldwin has also led efforts to combat China’s cheating and confront unfair trade deals.
