Brookfield, Wis. — Nurse and U.S. Senate candidate Leah Vukmir is winning the Republican primary race for U.S. Senate, leading her opponent by two points according to a new Marquette University Law Poll released Wednesday.
“Leah Vukmir is winning this race because she is the obvious, proven choice to beat Tammy Baldwin and be Wisconsin’s next U.S. senator,” said campaign manager Jess Ward. “The last two polls show that momentum has been with Leah ever since she earned the endorsement of the grassroots of the Republican Party of Wisconsin and now Speaker Ryan, Congressmen Sensenbrenner, Duffy and Grothman and the NRA. Conservative voters know they can count on Leah to work with President Trump to cut wasteful spending, drain the swamp and build the wall.”
Movement has been in Leah’s direction since March, according to the MU Law Poll. The June poll also showed Leah was the better candidate against Baldwin, with only a single-digit margin compared to Nicholson’s double-digit margin.
