More than a decade after becoming Wisconsin's first congresswoman, Baldwin became the first openly gay politician elected to the U.S. Senate, beating Republican candidate Tommy Thompson in the November 2012 election. (She is also the first Wisconsin woman elected to the Senate.)
According to her official website, Baldwin's mantra is to ignore "the naysayers, the cynics, and the keepers of the status quo; [those who say] you can't,
you shouldn't or you won't."
In the mid-1990s, Baldwin began dating Lauren Azar, who was appointed commissioner of the Wisconsin Public Service Commission in 2007. The couple split in 2010, after nearly 15 years together, and just months after registering for domestic partnership in the state of Wisconsin.
