Republicans are targeting Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., for her opposition to President Donald Trump's Supreme Court pick Judge Neil Gorsuch.

Baldwin, who is up for re-election in 2018, has said she would oppose Gorsuch’s nomination, but said she would meet with him, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

Gov. Scott Walker and Baldwin sniped at each other about the pick, with Baldwin mocking Walker’s failed presidential run and questioned whether he wanted to run against her and Walker calling Baldwin a hypocrite.


Meanwhile the National Republican Senatorial Committee released an advertisement that aired during the University of Wisconsin-Madison's basketball game against Indiana University.



 The ad is part of a larger effort by Republicans to target Democrats up for re-election in 2018 in states Trump won in 2016.
