Baldwin a Top '04 Vote-Getter

U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin thanked the crowd for helping her to get more votes than any other Democratic representative last year.

"Thank you 2nd Congressional District Democrats for making me the highest Democratic vote getter in the nation," Baldwin said. "253,627, but who's counting?"

Baldwin also criticized the Republican party for looking out for a narrow group of interests (HMOs, pharmaceutical concerns and credit card companies, to name a few), instead of being concerned with the well-being of all citizens.

"They've taken care of the outsourcers and the traitors and the military-industrial complex," she said, and said Democrats needed to be focused on working for the common good.
