Madison, Wisconsin – Brad Bainum, Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson for the 2018 Senate race, issued the following statement on the United States Senate special election in Alabama:
“Tonight, Wisconsinites should be reminded of Kevin Nicholson’s Roy Moore ties: Nicholson refused to return money from Roy Moore’s top super PAC donor Dick Uihlein; he bragged about his support from Moore’s ‘master strategist’ Steve Bannon; and he failed to denounce his national party’s support for Roy Moore.
“A lot of Republicans lost tonight, but perhaps no one so badly as Kevin Nicholson, who got to keep a $5,400 check from his and Roy Moore’s top out-of-state puppet master, Dick Uihlein, but had to betray our Wisconsin values in the process.
“Kevin Nicholson still has a chance to disavow his and Moore’s top out-of-state special interest backers, and we’d encourage him to once and for all cut ties with Bannon and Uihlein.”
