Campaign reports 10,000 Wisconsinites have donated to the campaign
July 10, 2018 – (Delafield) – The Kevin Nicholson for U.S. Senate campaign today announced that it raised over $1 million in the second quarter of 2018. Donors from each of Wisconsin’s 72 counties contributed to the campaign in the second quarter. This brings the Nicholson campaign’s total fundraising to over $3.2 million since launching in July 2017, with 10,000 Wisconsin donors who have invested in his campaign.
“I’m so proud that 10,000 Wisconsinites have contributed to our campaign, representing all 72 counties. We are working hard every day and will use these funds to continue to take this fight to November and defeat Tammy Baldwin,” said Nicholson. “It’s clear that voters want an outsider to clean up the mess in Washington. And they’re ready to ‘Send in the Marine’.”
This announcement comes on the heels of the release of the latest Marquette University Poll that shows Nicholson continuing to lead the Republican primary, and a disastrous underwater predicament for Tammy Baldwin, who has an unfavorable rating of 43% and a favorable rating of only 41% despite blanketing the state with heavy TV advertising. Wisconsin voters know that Baldwin doesn’t fight for them and the results prove their dissatisfaction. November’s election is well within reach and ours to win.
Honorary Campaign Co-Chairs Jim Klauser and Murph Burke are joined by Nicholson for Senate Wisconsin Finance Committee members: John Anderson, Betsie Berrien and Bill Berrien, Ginee Burke and Tom Burke, Debbie Cervenka, Tom Diehl, Jeff Harris, Rick Lommen, Patti McKeithan and Jack McKeithan, Fred Mohs and Mary Mohs, Ed Mooney, Ann Murphy and Pat Murphy, Mick Neshek, Matt Neumann, Trygve Solberg, Liz and Dick Uihlein, and Terrence Wall.
Nicholson’s endorsements include an impressive and growing coalition: a dozen Wisconsin sheriffs and over a hundred veterans, Senator Mike Lee and Senator Ted Cruz, BoltonPac, Wisconsin Family Action, Club for Growth, FreedomWorks for America, Ed Rollins and Great America PAC, Tea Party Patriots, Combat Veterans for Congress, Code of Vets, Family-Pac Federal, and the Madison Project.
Nicholson is a decorated Marine Corps veteran who served combat tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan. He currently works as a business consultant, helping companies solve their toughest problems. He is a first-time candidate running in the Republican primary to defeat Democrat Tammy Baldwin. Kevin and his wife live in Delafield with their three young children.
