MADISON, November 8, 2012, ( – On Tuesday night, Wisconsin’s Tammy Baldwin became the first openly homosexual candidate to be elected to the U.S. Senate. 

“Having a seat at the table matters and I think we will see a Senate that is more reflective of America. We’re certainly not there yet, but this will be a change that moves us forward,” Baldwin said after the election.


Homosexual activists celebrated her victory, which coincided with successful initiatives in three states to change the definition of marriage.  “This is a big day for gay women in America, and really, for all communities who aren’t the typical straight, white, wealthy men elected to Congress,” said homosexual political strategist Sally Kohn.

Baldwin will be replaced in the U.S. House of Representatives by another openly homosexual Democrat, Mark Pocan.

“Yesterday reminds us we have much work to do in Wisconsin and in America,” Wisconsin Family Action wrote in response to the unprecedented election results favoring homosexual causes and candidates. “We know our work of strengthening and preserving marriage, family, life and liberty is more important now than ever.”  

The group said they plan to continue fighting for traditional values in Wisconsin. “We are not discouraged;” they wrote. “We are already getting ready for the next round!”
