Photos From The Night Tammy Baldwin Made History As First Openly Gay Elected Senator

Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) made history on November 6 in the 2012 general election when she became the first openly gay senator in the nation to win a seat in the U.S. Senate.

A crowd of Baldwin's supporters gathered at the Monona Terrace Convention Center in downtown Madison where Baldwin gave her victory speech and we're lucky enough to have a collection of photos, courtesy of the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund, from that incredible night.
