MADISON - Democratic Wisconsin Sen. Tammy Baldwin has voted against confirming President Donald Trump's pick to lead the CIA, despite a Republican opponent accusing Baldwin of being part of "Team Terrorists" for not backing the nominee.
Baldwin says the fact that Gina Haspel wouldn't say torture is immoral disqualifies her for the position.
Baldwin had not stated her position on Haspel until Thursday, just before the Senate vote. Republican Sen. Ron Johnson voted to confirm Haspel.
State Sen. Leah Vukmir says Baldwin is part of "Team Terrorists" for not backing Haspel.
Vukmir calls Baldwin an "extreme liberal who would rather keep the CIA's top job open - to the delight of terrorists and our enemies - rather than do the right thing." Vukmir faces a primary challenge from Republican Kevin Nicholson, who also supports Haspel.
WOODRUFF - Ascension Wisconsin Spirit Medical Transport hosted a fun-filled day for family and friends on Saturday.
This comes about five months after one of its helicopters crashed, killing three Spirit employees.
Regional manager Charles Kotke said those men were in mind today,
"Today is a day of bringing people together, as well as a celebration of our 25 year anniversary," said Kotke. "This team did an amazing job getting us back to caring for our patients and doing what we need to do to care of our community."
Flight paramedics showed off the aircrafts to people and the helicopter was a big hit.
"They definitely like to look at the aircrafts. See how we transport patients from point A to point B," said Northern Region Supervisor Ryan Short.
Next Saturday, Spirit is celebrating with more associates. The second part of the celebration will be in Stevens Point.
