Kevin Nicholson for… Illinois Billionaires? Highlights Nicholson’s Relationship with His Biggest Backer: A Billionaire CEO from Illinois 

Illinois’ Dick Uihlein Has Already Invested At Least $3.5M To Boost Nicholson

MADISON — The Democratic Party of Wisconsin is today launching — a project exposing Senate candidate Kevin Nicholson’s financial obligations to billionaire Illinois CEO and megadonor Richard Uihlein, who has so-far poured at least $3.5 million into boosting Nicholson’s run.

“There’s a lot we don’t yet know about Kevin Nicholson, but we do know that he’s sure to benefit from $3.5 million from an Illinois CEO with a reputation for spending millions to influence the right-wing agenda,” said Brad Bainum, Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson for the 2018 Senate race. “Kevin Nicholson backs the Trump-Ryan tax plan that gifts 80% of cuts to wealthy billionaires like Uihlein, so every Wisconsinite should be wondering what else Nicholson has already promised his out-of-state billionaire benefactor in exchange for financial support. Are Wisconsin voters comfortable with a right-wing billionaire CEO from Illinois trying to handpick our state’s next U.S. Senator?”
