Thursday, 19 October 2017 10:55 Highlights Nicholson's Relationship with Illinois Billionaire Dick Uihlein, who Has Already Invested At Least $3.5M To Boost Nicholson.

MADISON -- The Democratic Party of Wisconsin is today launching -- a project exposing Senate candidate Kevin Nicholson's financial obligations to billionaire Illinois CEO and megadonor Richard Uihlein, who has so-far poured at least $3.5 million into boosting Nicholson's run.

"There's a lot we don't yet know about Kevin Nicholson, but we do know that he's sure to benefit from $3.5 million from an Illinois CEO with a reputation for spending millions to influence the right-wing agenda," said Brad Bainum, Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson for the 2018 Senate race. "Kevin Nicholson backs the Trump-Ryan tax plan that gifts 80% of cuts to wealthy billionaires like Uihlein, so every Wisconsinite should be wondering what else Nicholson has already promised his out-of-state billionaire benefactor in exchange for financial support. Are Wisconsin voters comfortable with a right-wing billionaire CEO from Illinois trying to handpick our state's next U.S. Senator?"

scott-walker-harleyDemocrats slam latest Walker campaign video.

MADISON - The following is a statement from the Democratic Party of Wisconsin's Communications Director, Melanie Conklin.

“If Scott Walker released an honest video on his track record in Wisconsin, it would show his refusal to expand health care to all Wisconsinites, his rejecting federal money to improve broadband in rural Wisconsin, his wounding cuts to our public schools and his singular pursuit of serving the ultra-wealthy around the country over the majority of middle-class Wisconsin residents. Proof is in his tax giveaways to the rich, his extravagant credit-card state borrowing and his complete failure on his very own job-creation promises that were the centerpiece of his first campaign.

“Scott Walker’s political posing on a motorcycle is fine, but an accurate video would show him being jostled around on Wisconsin’s crumbling roads that are the fourth worst in the nation as he sped across a state line to a waiting jet to take him to his latest coastal fundraiser-- ignoring Wisconsin as he pursues higher office for himself.

“His new white W logo stands for nothing but Walker himself, as he has always put his personal political pursuits far ahead of Wisconsin’s needs and interest.”

MILWAUKEE – Former US Senator Herb Kohl announced his endorsement of State Superintendent Tony Evers in his run for Governor.

tony_evers_statesupt“I am proud today to announce my endorsement of my friend, Tony Evers, for Governor. I’m supporting Tony because he’s a different kind of candidate. He’s taught in a classroom and led a school. He has changed lives one kid at a time,” Kohl said. “Now he leads a state agency responsible for educating all Wisconsin kids, and he’s changing lives there too. That’s why over 70% of us voted to re-elect Tony last April.”

Kohl, famous for being “Nobody’s Senator but Yours” also previously helped build his family’s grocery and department store business, Kohl’s, into a true Wisconsin success story.

“Tony has succeeded because he knows how to bring people together to solve problems. He treats people fairly and with respect. He gets things done,” Kohl commented. “Over the past seven years, Wisconsin hasn’t had enough leaders like Tony. The politicians in charge in Madison have focused on pointing figures and pitting people against each other. They’re making our problems worse, and people are suffering as a result. With Tony as Governor, this nonsense stops. I believe that Tony will bring the right kind of change to our state,” Kohl concluded.

Tony Evers has been elected three times to serve as State Superintendent of Public Instruction, winning 70 of 72 counties in his last election, with 70 percent of the vote statewide. Evers has spent his entire career educating our kids, previously working as a science teacher, a high school principal and as school district superintendent. As State Superintendent, Evers runs one of the largest agencies in the state, with responsibility over 70,000 educators and 860,000 students. Evers is the father of 3 children and 6 grandchildren, raising his family in communities throughout Wisconsin, including Plymouth, Baraboo, Tomah, Oakfield, Omro, Oshkosh and Verona.
