Nicholson Super PAC Throws Hail Mary to Save Embattled Candidacy, Before it Even Begins

"It's not surprising that the only person willing to support Kevin Nicholson is an Illinois multimillionaire."

MADISON — After weeks of terrible news about Kevin Nicholson‘s secret candidacy for U.S. Senate, the Super PAC that first propped up his run has thrown another $1.5 million behind him. Not only has Nicholson faced multiple questions about his honesty, ranging from when he became a Republican to his vote in the Democratic Primary for President, he’s been called out as an “opportunist” by the people who know him best.

To save his flailing candidacy that hasn’t even launched yet, the super PAC started by Nicholson’s out-of-state sugar daddy Dick Uihlein, has dropped an additional $1.5 million, to prop up the campaign. That brings the PAC’s total to influence Wisconsin’s election to $3.5 million.

“It’s not surprising that the only person willing to support Kevin Nicholson is an Illinois multimillionaire. If Kevin Nicholson has time to woo out of state millionaires, he should stop hiding from the people of Wisconsin. The people he hopes to serve deserve to know where Kevin stands on the Senate Republican health care bill that benefits people like Dick Uihlein, but hurts hard working Wisconsinites.”
