Kevin Nicholson is seeking the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in Wisconsin. Oddly enough, Nicholson's parents donated $2,700 each -- the maximum allowed under the law -- to the incumbent, Democrat Tammy Baldwin.
From The Week:
Nicholson, a former president of College Democrats of America, told CNN he's not taking it personally. "My parents have a different worldview than I do, and it is not surprising that they would support a candidate like Tammy Baldwin, who shares their perspective," he said. Nicholson said he became a conservative in 2007 after serving with the Marines in Iraq, and "regardless of who may disagree with my life decisions, I would not trade these experiences for anything, and they will always guide my views as Wisconsin's next U.S. senator."
