MADISON — Brad Bainum, Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson for the 2018 Senate race, issued the following statement on the latest pro-Kevin Nicholson investment from Illinois CEO Dick Uihlein-bankrolled super PAC Solutions for Wisconsin:
“Despite support from numerous out-of-state special interest groups, Kevin Nicholson can’t find anyone from Wisconsin to back his candidacy. That’s why his top supporter — a billionaire CEO from Illinois who can’t even vote in next year’s GOP primary — is throwing money at the problem, adding to the $15 million he’s already invested in trying to buy Nicholson a Senate seat.”
Uihlein-funded groups supporting Kevin Nicholson:
Solutions for Wisconsin — Uihlein is the group’s sole funder, having donated $3.5 million.
FreedomWorks — Uihlein was the group’s top contributor during the 2015-2016 cycle, investing $250,000.
Club for Growth Action — Uihlein has invested $5.75 million since 2015.
Great America PAC — Uihlein invested $100,000 during the 2015-2016 cycle.
Restoration PAC — Uihlein invested $3.45 million during the 2015-2016 cycle.
Americas PAC — Uihlein has invested $2.16 million through last month.
