MILWAUKEE — A leaked video starts a firestorm in Wisconsin’s Senate race. This, after one of Republican Tommy Thompson’s closest advisors tweeted a link in what appears to be an attack on Democrat Tammy Baldwin’s sexual orientation.

Baldwin is openly gay. And before giving one of the biggest speeches of her career at the Democratic National Convention, Congresswoman Baldwin told FOX6′s Mike Lowe her sexuality will not be a focus of the campaign.

But as reported by wispolitics.com, Brian Nemoir, Political Director for Republican candidate Tommy Thompson, wrote this short message to followers on Twitter before Baldwin’s speech: “Clearly, there’s no one better positioned to talk ‘heartland values’ than Tammy.”

There was also a link a clip of video from a 2010 gay pride rally in Madison. In the video, Baldwin is seen dancing on stage.

Denise Cawley, who is on the board for Milwaukee’s LGBT Community Center, calls the tweet an attack.

“I think the timing is very interesting as to when he decided to tweet his quote personal opinion,” said Cawley.

Nemoir tells FOX6 News he is declining all requests for additional comments.

The Thompson campaign is distancing itself saying, “Brian acted on his own…He was not representing the Thompson campaign.”
