MADISON — Today, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin launched a social media series highlighting GOP Senate hopeful Kevin Nicholson‘s continued silence on one of the most important issues to face the U.S. Senate: the repeal of affordable health care access. As GOP leadership in the Senate prepares to announce another attempt at repealing the Affordable Care Act, Kevin Nicholson should tell the people of Wisconsin where he stands on the current stalled version and if he’d support the new version coming out tomorrow.

As top-tier candidates continue to drop out and Wisconsin’s GOP is left to choose among their C and D listers, Kevin Nicholson is now the last in consideration to stay silent on health care repeal plans that will have such a direct, personal impact on all Wisconsinites.

“The people of Wisconsin will not be fooled by Kevin Nicholson’s silence on the repeal of access to affordable health care. Nicholson’s opponents all stand with the establishmentRepublicanss in Washington that do the bidding of millionaires and special interests, and so will he. It’s time for Kevin to come out of the shadows and show his support for the Senate GOP legislation. Wisconsin should know where Kevin stands,” said Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson Brandon Weathersby.
