A new TV ad from the super PAC backing U.S. Senate candidate Leah Vukmir knocks Republican opponent Kevin Nicholson over his Dem past and ties to former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
The 30-second ad from Wisconsin Next PAC notes Nicholson, former president of the College Democrats of America, wrote a letter to Clinton in 2000 inviting her to be a keynote speaker at the group’s national convention and praising her “unwavering commitment on important issues facing young people.”
The ad also includes clips of Nicholson’s speech at the convention that year, including him saying: “The Democratic Party shares our values.”
“Republicans can’t trust Kevin Nicholson,” the narrator says. “Fortunately, Wisconsin Republicans have conservative Leah Vukmir.”
Vukmir, the narrator says, is the only candidate endorsed by the NRA.
The ad buy is $500,000, according to the group’s filing with the FEC.
