Ryan, Sensenbrenner endorse Vukmir in Senate primary

House Speaker Paul Ryan and Wisconsin Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner are endorsing Leah Vukmir (VOOK’-mir) in a Republican primary for Democrat Tammy Baldwin’s U.S. Senate seat.

Vukmir, a state senator, is running against management consultant and political newcomer Kevin Nicholson in the Aug. 14 primary. Vukmir has tried to play up her conservative voting record and support for Trump, even though she did not initially endorse him.

Nicholson is running as the outsider. He brands Vukmir as a career politician.

Ryan says Vukmir is longtime friend and conservative ally who is committed to challenging the status quo. Ryan and Sensenbrenner announced their endorsement Monday on the conservative website RightWisconsin.
