Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kevin Nicholson has brought on John Vinson, a former political director for the Wisconsin GOP, as his campaign manager, a spokesman tells WisPolitics.com.
Vinson, who started the job Tuesday, worked in Wisconsin during the 2016 cycle. He worked in Virginia as the Republican Governors Association state director last year and in his native Florida.
In 2015, he was named state director in Wisconsin for the national party’s 2016 field operation. It was a dual role with his state party responsibilities.
Vinson was regional victory director in Wisconsin for Gov. Scott Walker’s 2012 recall campaign and has served in numerous other campaign roles around the country. He spent the 2014 cycle with the RNC in Washington, D.C.
