Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kevin Nicholson caused a stir last week, when he refused to apologize for remarks he made regarding veterans who support the Democratic Party. A group of Republican veterans demanded an apology, after Nicholson told a local radio host he doesn't understand the "cognitive thought process" of democratic veterans.
Nicholson is a former Marine who's running against state Sen. Leah Vukmir in a Republican primary in August. The winner will face Democratic Incumbent Tammy Baldwin in November. Nicholson is also a past president of the College Democrats of America. In this week's "Capitol Notes" conversation, Marti Mikkelson asked JR Ross of wispolitics.com, what he makes of all this.
