Tammy Baldwin won the Democratic party's nomination Tuesday for U.S. Senate; she was running unopposed.
Baldwin will face Republican Tommy Thompson for the seat in November.
Baldwin's campaign said that the competitive GOP primary boosts her chances at victory.
"The Republican primary has been negative," Baldwin said. "It's been nasty, it's been very divisive, and it's going to remain a divided party tomorrow because no matter who comes through the primary tonight, the overwhelming majority of primary voters will have voted against the winner."
The Baldwin campaign said the Congresswoman is a strong advocate of tax breaks for America's middle class to spur economic growth.
Baldwin is also a supporter of wind energy and other renewable energy sources, part of her effort to create a more potent manufacturing industry.
She said she will stand up for Wisconsin's middle class as she always has.
"I will fight for Wisconsin's middle class by working across party isle lines to move our economic recovery level forward working to build a made in Wisconsin manufacturing agenda," Baldwin said
She said while her opponent will stand with those who already have too much power in Washington D.C., she will fight to do what's right for the middle class.
