RINO of the Month July 2020

Senator Fred Baldwin

Even though Lincoln County State Senator Fred Baldwin claims he is a Republican, the proof is in the pudding with his 0% WyoRINO score that he is a Republican in Name Only. His July RINO of the Month award is well-deserved!

One of the most important platforms at all levels of the Republican party are defending the lives of unborn children. Sen. Baldwin’s deeply troubling votes this session included his opposition to Amendment 3020 to SF1 which would stop taxpayer funded abortions in the University of Wyoming student health insurance plan.

Additionally, Sen. Baldwin voted against SF 97 which requires health care practitioners to exercise the same degree of professional skill, care and diligence to any infant born alive after an abortion, as they would render to any other child born alive.

He also voted for numerous bills which would increase the tax burden upon Wyoming citizens (SF 6 I-80 Tolling; HB 73 Nicotine Products Tax; HB 134 Lodging Tax).

WyoRINO believes that since Sen. Baldwin votes like a Democrat, he should stop misleading his constituency and run on the Democrat ticket.
