AP FACT CHECK: Claim against Sen. Baldwin exaggerated
Wisconsin Republican U.S. Senate candidate Leah Vukmir has repeatedly attacked incumbent U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin, saying the Democrat failed to protect communities against sex offenders.
Vukmir, a state senator, is one of two leading contenders for the Republican nomination to take on Baldwin in the November election, with national control of the Senate majority possibly at stake.
A look at Vukmir’s claim:
VUKMIR: “Really, @SenatorBaldwin? You wanted to protect us from offensive school mascots but didn’t protect us from sex offenders in our communities?”
THE FACTS: Vukmir’s claim is exaggerated.
