Nicholson Announces for Senate

No thanks.

Businessman and former Marine Kevin Nicholson announced today he will run for the U.S. Senate, the first Republican candidate to officially launch a bid to challenge Dem Tammy Baldwin.

three-minute announcement video Nicholson released this morning called him a “conservative warrior with the guts to fight Washington” and a conservative outsider. It highlighted his combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as the Bronze Star he was awarded.

Nicholson also acknowledged in the video he was once a Democrat, which has become a point of contention in the possible GOP primary. But he said since those “younger days,” he’s had three kids, fought in two wars and been in businesses around the world.


Nicholson has faced questions over his political past, including including serving as national president of the College Democrats and his 2008 vote in the Dem presidential primary while stationed in North Carolina.

I understand that people’s political philosophies evolve as they mature, but I’m not ready to put him in the U.S. Senate as his first foray into conservative politics.

    Seems like he would be better suited to run against Tammy Baldwin in the primary.

    Or get elected to assembly as the conservative he claims to be…show some track record.

    Repentence from the disease of liberalism requires some visible proof in action.


  2. Le Roi du Nord

    I agree.  RoJo got elected without any track record and look at that dumpster fire.

  3. Kevin Scheunemann


    1.) Ron Johnson had no history of liberal activism, to the contrary, he always showed himself to be a conservative.

    2.) He is not a “dumpster fire”. Baldwin is the WI “dumpster fire” with her sweeping of Veteran’s scandal under the rug.

  4. Le Roi du Nord


    “Ron Johnson had no history of liberal activism”.  Correct, he had no history or track record at all other than running his in-law’s plastic factory.

    Rojo has been consistently rated as one of the worst senators in DC.  He is anti-science, anti-education, and right now no one knows where he stands on health care.

  5. Kevin Scheunemann


    He is anti- BAD science and anti-BAD government education.

    He supports good science, not cult religions of the left pretending to be science.

    He supports good education whether private or public, but opposes really bad government education.

  6. Kevin Scheunemann


    So are you saying Baldwin is a better Senator than Johnson?

  7. Le Roi du Nord

    By far.

    rojo doesn’t understand any science, good or bad, so you can’t make that claim.

    “cult religions of the left pretending to be science”  As opposed to the cult you belong to and pass off as the absolute truth?  Ha!!  So many hypocrites, so little time.

  8. Kevin Scheunemann


    Didn’t you say you were a “conservative”?

    Anyone who says Baldwin is a better Senator than Ron Johnson is lunatic fringe liberal.
