Speaking at the Milwaukee County Republican Party Reagan Day dinner, state Sen. Leah Vukmir (R) tried to show the difference between herself and challenger management consultant Kevin Nicholson (R).

She called a Nicholson a “D.C. candidate,” a reference to endorsements he has received from the Club for Growth and Steve Bannon.

“Wisconsinites aren’t really keen on having Washington, D.C. decide who their next U.S. senator [is]. We’ve been through enough elections in this state, and I think we can make that decision by ourselves,” Vukmir said.

Brandon Moody, a spokesman for Nicholson, said, “Kevin is a combat Marine and a true outsider. That doesn’t sit well with someone like Leah—the consummate insider—who’s been running for various offices for 20 years.” (WITI-TV)
