MADISON — Tonight, Leah Vukmir and Kevin Nicholson put on a two-hour show to win over the out-of-state billionaire Koch brothers, advocating hardline corporate special interest corruption that enriches the top one percent and big corporations while hardworking Wisconsinites get left behind.

“Leah Vukmir and Kevin Nicholson’s escalating personal attacks only add to the fact that they’re running to work for corporate special interests like the out-of-state billionaire Koch brothers and that they’ll do whatever it takes to protect Washington corruption,” said Brad Bainum, Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson for the 2018 Senate race. “From backing plans to take away 30 million Americans’ health care to supporting efforts to gut Social Security and Medicare, Vukmir and Nicholson have embraced hardline positions that would enrich their special interest big donors but inflict real harm on hardworking Wisconsin families.”
