Daily Bread for 7.6.22: So, What Happened to Kevin Nicholson’s Candidacy? Tim Michels, That’s What.

Good morning.

Wednesday in Whitewater will see scattered morning thundershowers and a high of 79. Sunrise is 5:23 AM and sunset 8:35 PM for 15h 11m 52s of daytime.  The moon is a waxing crescent with 43.3% of its visible disk illuminated.

On this day in 1933, the first Major League Baseball All-Star Game is played in Chicago’s Comiskey Park. The American League defeated the National League 4–2.

 Bill Glauber reports Kevin Nicholson drops out of Republican race for Wisconsin governor:

Delafield business consultant Kevin Nicholson announced Tuesday that he’s suspending his campaign in the Republican Party primary for governor.

In a statement, Nicholson said he didn’t want to go negative as a way to catch up in the contest against the two front-runners, Hartland business executive Tim Michels and former Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch.

He added that he does not plan to make any endorsements in the primary.

In January, it was reasonable to predict that Kevin Nicholson would be a strong WISGOP candidate. See from 1.26.22 Kevin and Rebecca

It’s now July, not January, and Nicholson hasn’t been a top-tier candidate in this race. 

Turns out there was only one lane for businessman-types, and Connecticut-homeowner Tim Michels took that lane and hasn’t looked back. 

While Nicholson was dependent on donor money, Michels has an ample supply of his own money (stocks, bonds, bank deposits, real property, money stuffed in mattresses, etc.).

Michels and Kleefisch are polling close to each other, but if the Nicholson voters decide to pick someone similar to Nicholson, well, that means Michels. 

There are still a significant number of undecided voters, apart from Nicholson voters (who may pick a new candidate or stay home). 

About five weeks remain before the August primary.
