Wisconsin US Senate 2018

Axios: The 2018 Senate elections to keep an eye on

Wisconsin: There's a lot of outside money backing Republicans challenging Sen. Tammy Baldwin, which gives Democrats some cause for concern. Former U.S. Ambassador to the UN John Bolton is spending $1 million to back candidate Kevin Nicholson, who will be up against state senator Leah Vukmir in the August primary.

¡Qué vergüenza!

Nicholson's parents are involved - they're contributing to their son's opponent:

That a parent would do this seems like a warning to others: "We know what he's like, DON'T vote for him!"

Koch-backed group puts $1.5M into ads hitting Wis. senator over VA scandal
BY JONATHAN EASLEY - 03/06/18 05:00 AM EST

A group associated with billionaire conservative donors Charles and David Koch is putting $1.5 million behind two advertisements attacking Wisconsin Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) for her handling of the Tomah Veterans Affairs Medical Center scandal.

Concerned Veterans for America will run ads in Wisconsin highlighting Baldwin’s handling of an opioid over-prescription crisis at the Veterans Affairs center in Tomah.

One of the ads is a first-person testimony from a man identified only as Mark, who said that he worked at the Tomah VA as a nurse but was also treated there as a veteran.
