Club for Growth Calls Vukmir a “RINO”

The National Club for Growth has sent a fundraising email in which it calls Republican U.S. Senate candidate Leah Vukmir a “RINO:”

 Wisconsin: Wisconsin offers another conservative vs. RINO primary and a chance to pick up a GOP seat in a swing state. As a U.S. Marine who served in Iraq and Afghanistan and a private businessman, Kevin Nicholson knows a thing or two about making America great. He is running against career politician State Sen. Leah Vukmir in the Republican primary and against progressive Sen. Tammy Baldwin in the general. >> DONATE to Kevin Nicholson’s campaign.

Vukmir is seen as one of the most conservative members of the state legislature and is running on her conservative legislative record. Nicholson has no experience in elected office and says he transitioned from Democrat to Republican in the early 2000s.

Meanwhile, Nicholson has also picked up the endorsement of former Tommy Thompson aid Jim Klauser.
