kevin-nicholson-cspanNicholson has repeatedly contended that he's been an active Republican since 2007. He says he left the Democratic Party as early as 2000, despite working to elect Democrats in 2002. Dems say his "dishonesty is disqualifying".

MADISON - The Wisconsin State Journal yesterday reported that Kevin Nicholson declined to register to vote as a Republican as late as 2010, when he moved to Massachusetts, despite Nicholson repeatedly claiming that he's been an active Republican since 2007.

This is just the latest glaring contradiction in Kevin Nicholson's year-long-and-counting campaign to perniciously mislead Wisconsinites about his personal views and political history:

  • It was UNTRUE when Nicholson claimed he left the 2000 Democratic National Convention convinced he was not a Democrat, because two years laterNicholson worked to elect Democrats in Minnesota -- and five years after that, he registered to vote as a Democrat in North Carolina.
  • It was UNTRUE when Nicholson said his military service led him to leave the Democratic Party, because it's a matter of public record that he voted in the 2008 Democratic presidential primary in North Carolina.
  • And the time Nicholson claimed to have voted "no preference" in 2008's Democratic presidential primary? There's NO EVIDENCE of that, either. Records prove otherwise, and PolitiFact has called out Nicholson's dishonesty.

"Wisconsinites expect transparency," said Brad Bainum, Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson for the 2018 Senate race. "Kevin Nicholson's pathological dishonesty is disqualifying, and no amount of spending from his out of out-of state, billionaire megadonor or corporate special interests can change that."
