Support for Kevin Nicholson Totals $5.5 Million Cash-On-Hand and Pre-Paid Media
Washington, DC – At the end of the 1st quarter, outside groups supporting conservative Marine Kevin Nicholson along with the Nicholson campaign reported having $5.5 million cash on hand and pre-paid media. This far surpasses the support of groups backing Nicholson’s opponent which reported it had raised $295,000 last quarter and had just $813,000 on hand. The Vukmir campaign had $650,000 reported on hand. The financial strength of Nicholson-aligned outside groups indicates that he is best positioned to win not only in August, but more importantly in November.
“Conservatives recognize that in order to take back Washington, we need to send in the Marine,” said Club for Growth President David McIntosh. “Kevin Nicholson has the best message and resources to win the primary and defeat Tammy Baldwin.”
Solutions for Wisconsin reported $200,000 cash on hand, Club for Growth super PACs had over $1 million, Restoration PAC had $2.1 million cash on hand, and America’s PAC reported $1.4 million in pre-paid media.
The strength of the outside groups supporting Nicholson augment his campaign’s performance against Vukmir’s. Nicholson raised $1 million for the quarter and Vukmir raised just $600,000. Nicholson reported $800,000 on hand and Vukmir has $650,000.
