Green Bay Area Cath­ol­ic Edu­ca­tion re­search of­ficer Nicole Schneider (R), a po­ten­tial chal­lenger to Sen. Tammy Bald­win (D), “was tar­geted last week in an an­onym­ous doc­u­ment ac­cus­ing her of de­let­ing so­cial me­dia posts crit­ic­al of GOP can­did­ates, in­clud­ing Pres­id­ent … Trump, and sup­port­ive of Demo­crats.”

“The six-page pa­per, it turns out, was cre­ated by an of­fi­cial with Amer­ic­an Ma­jor­ity and cited by Me­dia Track­ers — two con­ser­vat­ive non­profits with fin­an­cial links to a mega-donor back­ing an­oth­er pos­sible Re­pub­lic­an can­did­ate,” man­age­ment con­sult­ant Kev­in Nich­olson (R).

“Then late last week, someone secretly set up a web­site aimed at un­der­min­ing Nich­olson. The page in­cludes an ed­ited ver­sion of Nich­olson’s speech to the Demo­crat­ic Na­tion­al Con­ven­tion in 2000 when, as the na­tion­al head of the Col­lege Demo­crats of Amer­ica, he spoke out in fa­vor of abor­tion rights and en­dorsed Vice Pres­id­ent Al Gore’s pres­id­en­tial bid.” (Mil­wau­kee Journ­al Sen­tinel)
