On Monday, November 20, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Kevin Nicholson met with WBA leadership in Madison. Nicholson laid out his plan for the campaign, what he would like to accomplish as a U.S. Senator, and how he differs from incumbent Senator Tammy Baldwin (D). He is a Marine Corps veteran with tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and holds Masters degrees in Public Administration and Business Administration from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and Dartmouth Tuck School of Business.

If Nicholson will be the next Senator from Wisconsin, he will first have to get through the GOP primary. There, the only other declared candidate to date is State Senator Leah Vukmir (R-Brookfield). The primary for U.S. Senate will be in August 2018, with the general election in November.

Should either candidate beat Senator Baldwin, it will be the first time Wisconsin has had two Republican U.S. Senators since 1957, when we were represented by Joe McCarthy and Alexander Wiley.
