GOP Candidate's Parents Donate Max Amount to Help His Opponent
« on: February 13, 2018, 03:18:51 PM »



Kevin Nicholson isn’t feeling the love from his parents over his decision to run for Senate as a Republican.

The candidate’s parents have contributed the maximum amount allowed during the primary—$2,700 each—to his Democratic opponent in Wisconsin, Sen. Tammy Baldwin.

"My parents have a different worldview than I do, and it is not surprising that they would support a candidate like Tammy Baldwin who shares their perspective,” Nicholson told CNN in a statement.

“I’m a conservative today not because I was born one, but because of the experience I earned as a Marine in combat, my experience as a husband and father, my choice to be a Christian, the schools I chose to attend and the decision to pursue the career that I have,” he continued.

“Regardless of who may disagree with my life decisions, I would not trade these experiences for anything, and they will always guide my views as Wisconsin's next U.S. Senator."

Is it okay to string a bunch of foul words together here? :confused:

The parents of a GOP candidate for the US Senate in Wisconsin have made the maximum contributions allowed in the race — to their son’s rival.

Kevin Nicholson announced in July that he would seek the Republican nomination to challenge incumbent Sen. Tammy Baldwin in the 2018 mid-term elections.

In December, his parents, Donna and Michael Nicholson, each donated the maximum amount — $2,700 — to Baldwin, CNN reported.

Nicholson said he’s not surprised his parents would contribute to Baldwin, since they’ve always backed Democrats.

“My parents have a different worldview than I do, and it is not surprising that they would support a candidate like Tammy Baldwin who shares their perspective,” he said in a statement to CNN.

It is difficult only for the others.

It is the same when you are stupid."
