WisDems’ Statement on Kevin Nicholson Leaving the Republican Gubernatorial Race

MADISON, Wis. – Today, Kevin Nicholson exited the dumpster fire Republican primary for governor.

Democratic Party of Wisconsin Rapid Response Director Hannah Menchhoff released the following statement:

“Kevin Nicholson leaving the race only means that there is one less radical Republican in the gubernatorial primary. Nicholson exposed deep divisions among Wisconsin Republicans who only want to move further to the right. Both Rebecca Kleefisch and Tim Michels are extremist insiders who are more worried about pandering to the ultra-MAGA base instead of doing what’s right for Wisconsinites. Just like Kevin Nicholson, Rebecca Kleefisch and Tim Michels continue to oppose access to abortion, refuse to accept the results of the 2020 election, and have failed to bring our state together.”
