MADISON — The Associated Press today released a new bombshell report highlighting that Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kevin Nicholson received nearly $1 million in consulting commissions from hedge funds and private equity firms that laid off “nearly 1,900” workers while Nicholson was on their payroll.

“Now we know why Kevin Nicholson has been so evasive about his consulting work: Nicholson got rich working for shady corporate special interest hedge funds and private equity firms while they laid off hundreds of Wisconsin workers and off-shored jobs,” said Brad Bainum, DPW spokesperson for the 2018 Senate race. “Nicholson is running to work for his out-of-state corporate special interest megadonors in the U.S. Senate, not Wisconsin working families.”
