Kevin Nicholson is running for Senate as a Republican in Wisconsin. He just found out that his parents are more loyal to the Democratic party than their own son. Isn’t that amazingly sad?
The Hill reports:
GOP candidate’s parents make max donations to his Dem opponent
The parents of GOP Senate candidate Kevin Nicholson have maxed out their campaign contributions to the Democrat he’s challenging, CNN reported Monday.
Each of Nicholson’s parents gave $2,700 to Sen. Tammy Baldwin’s (D-Wis.) campaign in December, the largest amount they can give during the Democratic primary.
Nicholson’s mother, Donna, has been documented as giving thousands of dollars to Democratic candidates over the years. However, this is the first gift either of his parents have made to Baldwin’s campaign since Nicholson announced his own bid.
“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 said in a statement to CNN.
“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.
Can you even imagine putting petty politics ahead of one of your own children?
