Baldwin rips Trump, Walker

U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin tore into presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump and then took multiple swings at Gov. Scott Walker.

She acknowledged Dems are nearing the end off a long primary season but realize they have two "worthy progressive candidates." The GOP, she said, took a completely different approach.

"Meanwhile, the Republicans have had 17, count 'em, 17 bad candidates," the Madison Dem said. "And they managed to pick the worst of the bunch."

Baldwin described Trump as one of the most "offensive, hateful and unacceptable presidential candidates we've ever had." And, she said, Republicans now face a moral test in deciding whether they will fall in line behind him.

She hit U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Oshkosh, and U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Janesville, for their support of Trump. But she reserved her harshest critique for Walker.

She compared Walker to Trump, saying Wisconsinites know about underfunded schools, an environment under attack and the "middle class sold out."

Trump, Baldwin said, isn't much different than Walker.

"We know he's just Scott Walker with a spray tan," she said.

Listen to Baldwin's speech.
