Appleton, Wis. – Outagamie County Executive and grassroots candidate for U.S. Senate Tom Nelson is checking ALL THE BOXES for Democrats seeking to defeat billionaire son-in-law U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson in a new scorecard released today (attached).

Nelson, a fifth-generation Wisconsinite and preacher’s kid who has won SIX TIMES in a Trump-won county, is the ONLY candidate who has walked the walk when it comes to the issues most important to the Badger State and which set him apart as the best choice to take on Johnson.


Support from labor (he helped save a century-old paper mill in his home county)

Advocacy for Medicare for All

Never being tied to corporate interests or millionaire wealth

Signing the Green New Deal pledge

Deep Wisconsin roots

No other candidate in the race has the experience, track record or background as Nelson (background below).

The Nelson campaign also released a tweet about the scorecard.
