Tammy Baldwin, a candidate for U.S. Senate, will be the featured guest of the Milwaukee Press Club’s next Newsmaker Luncheon on Monday, Feb. 20, from 11:45 to 1:30 p.m. at the Newsroom Pub in downtown Milwaukee at 137 E. Wells St.
Baldwin’s appearance will be the second in the series of Newsmaker Luncheons featuring the Wisconsin candidates for U.S. Senate. The series kicked off Jan. 23 with Republican Tommy Thompson.
In 1999, Baldwin became the first woman elected to Congress from Wisconsin and the first self-declared lesbian to serve in Congress. She represents the state’s 2nd Congressional District.
She is vying for the U.S. Senate seat to be vacated by Democratic Sen. Herb Kohl, who is retiring.
The general election will be held Tuesday, Nov. 6.
The public is invited to attend each of the Newsmaker Luncheons featuring the Senate candidates, who will be interviewed by a panel of professional journalists. The Newsmaker Luncheons are moderated by BizTimes executive editor Steve Jagler.
The series will continue with Republican candidates Mark Neumann (March 19) and Jeff Fitzgerald (March 21).

The cost to attend is $15 for MPC members, $20 for non-members, $10 for students. Lunch is included. Seating will be limited.
