Interesting article in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel this morning accompanied by a tape recording of Republican US Senate candidate Kevin Nicholson seemingly agreeing with two unidentified men at a campaign event that Paul Ryan has a “light footprint in the state” and that Ryan’s lukewarm endorsement of President Trump “is a problem.” I can’t help but wonder if this is the influence of Steve Bannon in Nicholson’s campaign or just Nicholson’s inability to disagree with someone he wants to vote for him.
