Senate candidate Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) on Wednesday night told Current TV’s Jennifer Granholm that the people of Wisconsin were frustrated.

“Right now there is huge frustration, but also huge participation in the state of Wisconsin,” she said. “We’re famous right now for all these elections we have queued up, but if you watch the state over the past year, what you saw is people regretting the outcome of the 2010 election and doing something about it.”

“Whether it was first attending legislative hearings or speaking out by marching in rallies or ultimately collecting one million signatures on petitions to recall the governor. That is almost one in every four eligible voters in the state of Wisconsin. Our electorate is engaged.”

Baldwin is running for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Herb Kohl (D). She will face former U.S. Rep. Mark Neumann or former Gov. Tommy Thompson depending on who wins the Republican primary in August.

She has raised more than $2 million in the first quarter of campaign fundraising, leading her potential opponents by a considerable amount.
