kevin-nicholsonMADISON - Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kevin Nicholson -- who has himself repeatedly been caught lying -- is now leveling charges of dishonesty at none other than First Lady Tonette Walker and her son, Alex, who works for Nicholson's primary opponent, state Sen. Leah Vukmir.

From WITI-TV:

Wisconsin First Lady Tonette Walker offers a very personal reason for supporting Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Leah Vukmir over rival Kevin Nicholson in the contested GOP primary this year.

The first lady says Vukmir’s opponent refused to shake her son Alex’s hand.
....
“When Alex said to me, ‘I was in a room with another candidate, and he refused to shake my hand,’ I was like, “Really? I mean, really? Seriously?’” Tonette Walker said. “To me, I don’t want someone in politics, and someone who’s going to represent me and the State of Wisconsin in politics, if he doesn’t have the common decency to extend his hand, to shake his hand with a young man.”
...
Nicholson’s campaign said it had no idea what Ward or Tonette Walker were talking about.

"No amount of petty infighting, name-calling, or accusations of dishonesty can change that fact that Kevin Nicholson and Leah Vukmir are running on a deeply unpopular, right-wing agenda that's all about selling out hardworking Wisconsinites to help corporate special interests and billionaire megadonors get even richer," said Brad Bainum, Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson for the 2018 U.S. Senate race.

leah-vukmir"Credit where due: Vukmir and Nicholson are innovators when it comes to finding new ways to tear each other down."


MADISON - How do they do it? Say what you will about Republican U.S. Senate candidates Leah Vukmir and Kevin Nicholson's hardline commitment to a right-wing policy agenda that enriches corporate special interests and the wealthy at the expense of hardworking Wisconsinites, the two primary opponents are remarkably creative when it comes to finding new ways to viciously attack each other.



kevin-nicholsonHere are the latest entries in the "nasty" GOP primary log:

  • Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Bice: Relative of GOP candidate Kevin Nicholson labels Scott Walker a 'sissy,' Leah Vukmir a 'swamp creature' in tweets
    • "Steve attacked state Sen. Leah Vukmir, the other GOP candidate in the race, labeling her a 'crooked politician,' a 'Pharisistic Swamp Creature,' Nurse Ratched, a 'cry baby,' 'B-squad material,' 'stale bread,' a 'liberal Democrat' and a 'deceitful little snake.'"
    • "Steve...also took after Gov. Scott Walker for associating with Vukmir...'Yo Gov - you're starting to look like a sissy running around the state with Leah,' Steve wrote last week under her handle @PJsMask. 'She's taking away your manhood and credibility.'"
    • "Brandon Moody, a spokesman for Nicholson, downplayed the issue, calling it 'goofy, small-ball stuff.'"
    • "But a Vukmir aide said the social media posts crossed a line. 'It's appalling to see a member of Kevin's family say such vile things about Leah,' said Jessica Ward, campaign manager for Vukmir. 'There is no place for this sort of filth in the Republican Party.'"
  • Leah Vukmir: "You know what you get with me...it's the roll of a dice with my opponent." [The Jay Weber Show, 3/26/18]
    • "[Nicholson] lists a slew of people and groups from D.C. who support him. And I think the people in Wisconsin want to decide who their next U.S. Senator is -- I don't think they want D.C. deciding."
    • "I truly believe this primary is between a Republican who has delivered on her conservative agenda, and one who merely says that he will -- you know what you get with me, Jay, I think it's the roll of a dice with my opponent."

"Credit where due: Vukmir and Nicholson are innovators when it comes to finding new ways to tear each other down," said Brad Bainum, Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson for the 2018 Senate race. "The GOP primary keeps getting nastier, but Vukmir and Nicholson have been steadfast in their shared commitment to a reckless, right-wing agenda that includes taking health care away from up to 30 million Americans and gutting Wisconsinites' Social Security and Medicare benefits."
