‘POTUS & Tammy’: Gov. Evers’ Spokesperson Compares Tammy Baldwin to Joe Biden


Gov. Tony Evers’ spokesperson says U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin is similar to President Joe Biden.

That comparison, although accurate, seems to be a politically risky move due to the president’s unpopularity in the polls, but there sat Baldwin at Biden’s appearance in Superior on Thursday. Some questioned why the president was giving a speech about a bridge in Wisconsin near the Minnesota border as the border crisis exploded. Yet there they all sat, as the crisis in Texas escalated, talking about a bridge.

Evers shared the photo of Evers, Biden, and Baldwin on X.

“Tony & @POTUS & Tammy Category is: Democrats who get things done,” his spokesperson Britt Cudaback wrote, comparing the three, and sharing the photo. Evers also tweeted, “@SenatorBaldwin and I are proud to welcome @POTUS to Wisconsin today.”

It’s true that Baldwin, a Democratic senator, shares a lot in common with Biden, whose policies she has robustly supported. For example, she recently wrote a letter demanding the release of illegal transgender immigrants into U.S. communities.

In the same letter, Baldwin also criticized a number of Trump administration policies that had slowed the flow of illegal immigrants into the U.S.

Furthermore, Baldwin, along with Sen. Elizabeth Warren, demanded that then-President Donald Trump’s administration allow transgender immigrants into the country. “Turning away transgender asylum seekers not only places them in harm’s way, it also violates the United States’ treaty obligations,” they wrote. They touted placing certain “asylum seekers…in the community with monitoring by social workers.”

Baldwin, who is expected to face Republican Eric Hovde for re-election, also has been a staunch supporter of Evers’ more controversial policies.

Baldwin (D-Wisconsin) made it clear that she opposes a Wisconsin legislative bill that bans genital and other surgeries on transgender children, including castration and sterilization.

Baldwin made her stance clear when she thanked Evers for promising to veto “every single one of them,” referring to legislative bills relating to transgender surgeries and transgender participation in girls’ and women’s sports. “I’ll help you stop it,” Evers said in the video.
