trumpcareGOP Senate candidates support partisan TrumpCare bills that strip healthcare access from millions, but reject bipartisan fix to fight spiking healthcare costs in Wisconsin after Trump sabotage.


leah-vukmirMADISON - Right-wing state Senator Leah Vukmir and out-of-state special interest puppet Kevin Nicholson have officially endorsed a 36% premium increase on Wisconsin working families.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Nicholson and Vukmir -- vocal backers of Republican TrumpCare healthcare plans that'd take healthcare away from tens of millions of Americans -- are now fully opposed to a bipartisan Senate bill sponsored by 12 Republicans and 12 Democrats, including Wisconsin's Tammy Baldwin, that aims to stabilize the President Trump-led sabotage of healthcare markets that has premiums spiking across the country, including by 36% in Wisconsin.

“By opposing this bipartisan solution to help make health care more affordable, Kevin Nicholson and Leah Vukmir are once again supporting higher costs for Wisconsinites," said Brad Bainum, Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson for the 2018 Senate race. "Both Vukmir and Nicholson have already supported taking health care away from millions, and now they’re endorsing a 36% premium hike on Wisconsin families.”

MADISON -- Brad Bainum, Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson for the 2018 Senate race, issued the following statement on the latest pro-Kevin Nicholson investment from Illinois CEO Dick Uihlein-bankrolled super PAC Solutions for Wisconsin:

"Despite support from numerous out-of-state special interest groups, Kevin Nicholson can't find anyone from Wisconsin to back his candidacy. That's why his top supporter -- a billionaire CEO from Illinois who can't even vote in next year's GOP primary -- is throwing money at the problem, adding to the $15 million he's already invested in trying to buy Nicholson a Senate seat."

Uihlein-funded groups supporting Kevin Nicholson:

Solutions for Wisconsin -- Uihlein is the group's sole funder, having donated $3.5 million.

FreedomWorks -- Uihlein was the group's top contributor during the 2015-2016 cycle, investing $250,000.

Club for Growth Action -- Uihlein has invested $5.75 million since 2015.

Great America PAC -- Uihlein invested $100,000 during the 2015-2016 cycle.

Restoration PAC -- Uihlein invested $3.45 million during the 2015-2016 cycle.

Americas PAC -- Uihlein has invested $2.16 million through last month.

nicholsonKevinForWisconsin.com 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 KevinForWisconsin.com -- 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?"
