What They're Saying About Thompson's 
Debate Win...
 

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: "In My Opinion, It Is Not In Baldwin's Best Interest To Have More Debates With Thompson..." First, Thompson is clearly more experienced and skilled at public speaking. His remarks were fluid, leaving now awkward finishes. Baldwin appeared anxious, stammered through of her deliveries, and didn't leave the perception of a confident and strong leader. (Aaron Rodriguez, Tommy Thompson corners the debate on leadership and reform, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Purple Wisconsin, 9/28/12) 

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: "'We built Wisconsin,'" Thompson returned to his record as governor for nearly a decade and a half and dismissed Baldwin as far to the left of the state's voters. "We cut taxes. We changed welfare, giving people hope and opportunity. We built Wisconsin," Thompson said. " . . . Even her party doesn't pass her legislation because she's so far out of the mainstream." (Lee Bergquist, Baldwin, Thompson spar on their records, nation's future, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, 9/29/12)
 

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: "Thompson pointed to the more than 740,000 jobs created during his time as governor..." Thompson pointed to the more than 740,000 jobs created during his time as governor between January 1987 to January 2001 - a period of tremendous national economic growth - and his record of cutting taxes scores of times and overhauling the state's welfare program. (Lee Bergquist, Baldwin, Thompson spar on their records, nation's future, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, 9/29/12)

Associated Press: "'When you don't have a record, you attack the other person...'" "I get things done. I don't criticize the other side. I make sure things happen." (Todd Richmond, Thompson goes after Baldwin in Wis. Senate debate, Associated Press, 9/28/12)

Associated Press: "He ripped her for allowing the nation's debt to grow to $16 trillion..."  Thompson opened up by declaring he'd cut taxes dozens of times and created more than a half million jobs during his 14 years as governor. He labeled Baldwin the top spender in the U.S. House. He ripped her for allowing the nation's debt to grow to $16 trillion. 'My opponent is a taxer and a spender,' Thompson said. (Todd Richmond, Thompson goes after Baldwin in Wis. Senate debate, Associated Press, 9/28/12)
 

WisPolitics: "TommyThompson portrayed Senate opponent Tammy Baldwin Friday night as a "taxer and a spender" who is outside the mainstream..." "My opponent is so far to the extreme even her party doesn't pass any of her legislation," Thompson said. (Thompson and Baldwin go on attack in first U.S. Senate debate, WisPolitics, 9/28/12)

Roll Call: "The Democrats' signature health care law helped cost three-term Wisconsin incumbent Russ Feingold his seat in 2010." Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D) made clear tonight that she thinks her support of the law will help her secure victory over former Gov. Tommy Thompson (R). ... My opponent is so far to the extreme even her party doesn't pass any of her legislation," Thompson said. (Meredith Shiner, Health Care Takes Center Stage in Wisconsin Senate Debate, Roll Call, 9/29/12) 

Politico: "Quick #WISEN take: Tommy was strong, more energy" (Dave Catanese, Twitter, 9/28/12)
 

Wisconsin Public Radio: "My opponent is ranked as a number one liberal in the United States House of Representatives." "We were able to create 742,000 jobs while I was governor. I was a reformer. My opponent is ranked as a number one liberal in the United States House of Representatives. That's a pretty hard ranking to get to, when you know that she is the number one spender in the House of Representatives." (Debate: Baldwin and Thompson Court Voters in Statewide Broadcast, Wisconsin Public Radio, 9/29/12)

WISN-TV in Milwaukee: "'Thompson opened the debate at WMVS-TV's Milwaukee studios by labeling the Democratic congresswoman 'a taxer and a spender.'" He accused her of being out of the mainstream and failing to produce any changes in Washington. "Baldwin doesn't have a record to run on, so all she can do is try to get people not to like me," Thompson said. (Baldwin, Thompson square off in first debate, WISN-TV, 9/28/12)

Oak Creek Patch: "Former Gov. Tommy Thompson went on the attack Friday night against U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin in their first debate for the U.S. Senate race." Republican Thompson portrayed his Democratic opponent as a "taxer and a spender" who is outside the mainstream, according to WisPolitics.com. (Mark Maley, Down in the Polls, Thompson Blasts Baldwin in First Debate, Oak Creek Patch, 9/29/12)
