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.

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."

MADISON - Three potential Senate candidates today admitted they would have voted with Washington Republicans to advance a bill that would drive up the costs of Wisconsinites’ health care and impose an age tax on Americans while the wealthiest few get a tax break. From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

“[Eric Hovde] said he would "absolutely, 100%" vote to launch debate on repealing Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act… Hovde came in second in the 2012 Republican primary to run against Baldwin and plans to decide this fall on whether he will run again.

“Also considering a run is business consultant Kevin Nicholson, who has the support of a super PAC that has raised $3.5 million. In a statement, he said he hoped the Senate would repeal Obamacare.”

“In an appearance last month on WISN-TV's "Upfront with Mike Gousha," Vukmir called an initial health care proposal by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) a “great starting point.”

“State Rep. Dale Kooyenga (R-Brookfield), a fourth possible candidate, could not immediately be reached on Tuesday. He told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel last month that his preference would be to entirely repeal Obamacare but that he would be willing to support McConnell’s proposed health care changes because his plan was ‘better than the status quo.’”
