Thompson campaign pokes at Baldwin in advance of tonight's speech

U.S. Senate candidate Tammy Baldwin's address to the final night of the Democratic National Convention is already drawing a negative hit from Tommy Thompson's campaign.

The longtime Madison-area congresswoman has said her speech tonight will focus on "heartland values."

In response, Thompson campaign senior adviser Brian Nemoir last night circulated a link to a YouTube video of Baldwin dancing with a band at a gay pride festival in Madison. Wrote Nemoir in the email: "Clearly, there's no one better positioned to talk 'heartland values' than Tammy."

Baldwin's campaign declined to comment on the Thompson campaign email.

If elected, Baldwin would be the first openly gay U.S. senator.
