Solutions for Wisconsin, a super PAC formed at the end of March to support the potential candidacy of Kevin Nicholson in the 2018 U.S. Senate race, announced today that it will report raising $1.5 million in its second quarter filing. The additional $1.5 million raised brings the group’s total fundraising to $3.5 million since it was created at the end of March.
Kevin Nicholson, a Wisconsin native, who is a combat veteran, successful business leader and Delafield, WI family man, is widely expected to challenge incumbent Democrat Tammy Baldwin.
“Tammy Baldwin is one of the most vulnerable Democratic Senators in 2018 and Kevin Nicholson would be the perfect candidate to defeat her,” Solutions for Wisconsin spokesman Chris Schrimpf said. “Kevin is an outsider, a combat veteran and a business leader. Uniting around Kevin now gives our Party its greatest chance at victory next year. If he runs, we will do everything we can to help Kevin win and will have the resources to make it happen.”
When Solutions for Wisconsin was announced supporter Richard Uihlein said, “I strongly encourage others to support this effort and avoid a repeat of 2012’s divisive Republican primary.”
