Power List 2014: TAMMY BALDWIN
U.S. Senator, 52
The liberal Democrat’s voting record since being sworn in proves Wisconsin offers up far better things than cheese. She’s dedicated her political career to ending discrimination and creating a more equal America. Through her various committee assignments, her influence has grown and she has cosponsored a number of bills to assist students and unemployed Americans, along with the Employment Non-Discrimination Act of 2013, which seeks to end gender and sexual orientation discrimination in the workplace.
