Nicholson’s need for out-of-state signature circulators to get on the ballot underscores Wisconsinites’ lack of enthusiasm for his candidacy

MADISON — Less than a week after GOP U.S. Senate candidate Kevin Nicholson’s “outsider” narrative was debunked and he was exposed as a deceitful opportunist, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel today reports that Nicholson does have some “outsider” credentials, after all.

In addition to Nicholson’s reliance on millions in financial support from Illinois billionaire Dick Uihlein, Nicholson counted on seven “paid” (according to his campaign) out-of-state circulators to secure more than 70% of the signatures that he needs to get on to the ballot.

This report comes a month after Nicholson lost the Republican Party of Wisconsin’s endorsement, after earning just 28% of the vote, and two weeks after Nicholson gave his second campaign manager of the past eight months the boot.

At some point, Nicholson should stop firing staff and start thinking about whether he’s the real problem.
