kevin-nicholsonMADISON - Senator LaTonya Johnson, Representative Chris Taylor, and Alexandra Acker-Lyons, who worked with Kevin Nicholson at College Democrats of America, will host a conference call with reporters Thursday afternoon to discuss Nicholson's struggle to get his story straight on his position on choice.

Since deciding it would be convenient for his long-term aspirations to run for Senate as a Republican, Kevin Nicholson has had a difficult time running from his record on choice, crossing wires as he attempts to explain away his past. If Nicholson can't get his story straight on a woman's access to healthcare, why would voters trust him?

Senator Johnson and Representative Taylor will be available for on-camera interviews following the call at the Democratic Party of Wisconsin office in Madison.

kevin-nicholson"Kevin’s in the pocket of an out-of-state billionaire" say WisDems.

MADISON - Today, the first of many third tier candidates announces their candidacy for the GOP nomination for Wisconsin's US Senate seat. Kevin Nicholson, propped up by a super PAC funded by an out of state billionaire, announced his candidacy after months of negative stories about his lies, past, positions, and beliefs.

Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Martha Laning said, "Kevin Nicholson is only out for himself and he’s already lied to voters about basic questions on his past – so why would they trust him with their future? Worse, Kevin’s in the pocket of an out-of-state billionaire whose money he’ll rely on to bankroll his campaign. We can’t count on Kevin to be honest or stand up for us."
