OSHKOSH (WLUK) -- U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wisconsin, says she anticipates being on the Democratic National Convention stage in Philadelphia next week along with other female Democratic senators.

The first-term senator spoke to FOX 11 after touring UW-Oshkosh's Living Healthy Community Clinic Thursday afternoon.

Baldwin and other female Democratic senators endorsed Clinton for president three years ago.

“As all of us have been very strong supporters of Secretary Clinton, we’re going to be talking about our work over the years with her and why we think she’s going to make an outstanding president and Commander in Chief," said Baldwin.

Baldwin says the time on the convention stage will also recognize retiring Sens. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland and Barbara Boxer of California.


Baldwin was not on a list of convention speakers the Democratic National Convention Committee released Thursday afternoon, but the DNCC said more speakers would be announced soon.

Baldwin, who faces re-election in two years, says the tone of the DNC will be much different than this week's Republican National Convention.

“I think you’re going to see a huge contrast in Philadelphia of unity of purpose, because what we’re really about is helping provide paths of opportunity, and to recognize that this economy really is tough for many, many Americans," said Baldwin.
