Wisconsin Republican Senate candidates Leah Vukmir and Kevin Nicholson won't criticize Trump
MILWAUKEE — Republican U.S. Senate candidates in Wisconsin stood by President Donald Trump during a Thursday debate, refusing to name anything he’s done that they oppose.
Trump has not endorsed in the race, but both Kevin Nicholson, a management consultant, and state Sen. Leah Vukmir have tried to embrace him as polls show a strong majority of Republicans in Wisconsin back the president.
I study kids who were separated from their parents. The trauma could change their brains forever.
While hundreds are still held by our government away from their parents, traumatizing the mothers and fathers, too.
So - - not to pick on Leah Vukmir
over Kevin Nicholson, but we also know that Vukmir includes in her official biography her decades of nursing training and practice, including pediatric care, so I wonder how she can square her support for Trump with what he and his directives have done:
Born Milwaukee, Wisconsin, April 26, 1958; 2 children.

What water, wetland protection is all about
"A little fill here and there may seem to be nothing to become excited about. But one fill, though comparatively inconsequential, may lead to another, and another, and before long a great body may be eaten away until it may no longer exist. Our navigable waters are a precious natural heritage, once gone, they disappear forever," wrote the Wisconsin Supreme Court in its 1960 opinion resolving Hixon v. PSC and buttressing The Public Trust Doctrine, Article IX of the Wisconsin State Constitution.
