Kevin Nicholson voices support for Vukmir in Senate race
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Republican Kevin Nicholson is voicing his support for Leah Vukmir, a month after she defeated him in the GOP Senate primary.
Nicholson sent an email to supporters on Thursday where he reaffirmed his support for Vukmir, which he had first voiced the night of his defeat. Vukmir beat him by 6 points.
Nicholson is a former U.S. Marine and Delafield management consultant.
Much of his message on Thursday was focused on the need he sees to defeat Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin.
He says, “it is critical that we unite to defeat Tammy Baldwin.”
Vukmir says in a statement that she is grateful for Nicholson’s support and says that “together” that will make the case against Baldwin over the next six weeks.
