D.C. Leah Keeps the Punches Coming in Ugly GOP Senate Primary

Jun 19, 2017

 If you thought the nasty tone of the Republican Senate primary peaked last week, well, think again. Washington-insider wannabe, Sen. Leah Vukmir is stirring the pot once again, this time taking aim at potential US Senate primary opponent Nicole Schneider. D.C. Leah shared a blog post from Right Wisconsin that specifically pointed out that she was a “stark contrast to her potential U.S. Senate primary opponent Nicole Schneider.” 

In the blog post, Right Wisconsin bloggers were trying to prop up Vukmir’s campaign by naming her their “winner of the day,” writing, ” “‪State Senator Leah Vukmir (who is likely running for US Senate) was awarded the ‘Building Wisconsin’ award on Wednesday from the Associated Builders and Contractors of Wisconsin for her efforts to pass prevailing wage repeal and project labor agreement neutrality.  We’ll just note that’s in stark contrast to her potential US Senate primary opponent Nicole Schneider, who was being walked-around at the Republican Party of Wisconsin convention by construction union lobbyist John Gard. So congratulations to Vukmir on an award that was well-deserved.”

D.C. Leah couldn’t wait to share the blog post slamming Schneider on her Facebook and Twitter pages. 

D.C. Leah’s policy advisor tweeted the post and specifically quoted its critique of Schneider, adding, “‘We’ll just note that’s in stark contrast to her potential US Senate primary opponent @nschneiderphd…’ #wiright #wisen @RightWisconsin” 

“We always knew the GOP Senate primary would turn into a dumpster fire of lies, nasty rhetoric, and running to the extreme right, but we didn’t think it would happen just six months into 2017,” Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesman Brandon Weathersby said on Monday. “Mid-way through the year, D.C. Leah is fighting to impress the Washington establishment, clearly willing to do anything and everything to win Wisconsin’s Senate seat.”
