State Rep. Dale Kooyenga (R-Brookfield), who had been considering entering next year’s US Senate race, indicated yesterday that he will not run. This is another signal that Republicans are coalescing around businessman Kevin Nicholson, who the Club for Growth is reportedly raising millions of support dollars. State Sen. Leah Vukmir (R-Brookfield) is expected to run, but Nicholson will clearly be the candidate with the strongest resources. The eventual Republican nominee challenges first-term Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D) in the general election.
