It looks like openly gay Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin, the Democrat from Wisconsin, will very likely run for the US Senate seat now occupied by Senator Herb Kohl, who has said he will not seek reelection in 2012. 

If Baldwin runs and wins, she would become the nation’s first openly LGBT member of the US senate. Seriously? The first? How is this 2011 and we have no openly gay senators in this country?

Chuck Wolfe, president and CEO of the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund:
“This would obviously be a top priority for us. Tammy Baldwin has been an outstanding congresswoman, and she’d be an outstanding senator. This would be a remarkable milestone for LGBT Americans. Congresswoman Baldwin is one of the most admired public officials I know. She would have the strong support of those who want to see our economy work for all Americans, and who believe that all voices deserve a place at the table.”

Yes, all voices deserve to be heard.
