The other L word: can Tammy Baldwin win in Wisconsin?

Eric Ostermeier weighs in on Baldwin's campaign for U.S. Congress.

Eric Ostermeier, a political scientist who writes for the University of Minnesota's Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs' Smart Politics blog, says can't imagine anyone attacking Baldwin as a lesbian, "unless people use that as proxy for how liberal she is." That's an entertaining twist on the old code attack of "San Francisco liberal" -- which once stood in for everything gay.
