Republican US Senate candidate Kevin Nicholson, a former Democrat who changed parties, is coming through a rough stretch in his bid to face Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D). But, a new poll suggests that smoother sailing is in his political forecast. Reports from last month cited Mr. Nicholson’s parents as actually becoming contributors to Sen. Baldwin’s campaign because his mother and father don’t agree politically with their son. The aforementioned survey, however, from WPA Intelligence (4/2-4; 1,028 WI likely Republican primary voters) brushes aside his lack of parental support and finds Mr. Nicholson leading his top GOP primary opponent, state Sen. Leah Vukmir (R-Brookfield), 45-27%. The Wisconsin primary isn’t scheduled until August 14th, so this race still has plenty of time to crystallize.
