MILWAUKEE (AP) - U.S. Senate candidate Tammy Baldwin has received nearly $60,000 for her Senate bid from a group against Iranian sanctions.
The left-of-center Council for a Livable World has supported the Democrat since her first congressional race in 1998.
A spokeswoman for Baldwin's Republican opponent, Tommy Thompson, said her strong ties to the council show her national security views are too extreme for Wisconsin.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports from 2006 to 2011 Baldwin voted against the four biggest efforts to toughen sanctions against Iran. But since entering the Senate race, she has twice voted in favor of expanding sanctions.
Baldwin's spokesman John Kraus noted she has voted for sanctions as far back as 2001. He said Baldwin has a consistent record of keeping America safe from terrorists.
