Military veterans claim candidate insulted their patriotism

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (WISN) - -

A group of veterans say Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kevin Nicholson insulted their patriotism last week on the radio when he said, "Those veterans that are out there in the Democrat Party, I question their cognitive thought process."

"We're calling on Kevin Nicholson to apologize to the millions of veterans whose patriotism he insulted by questioning our cognitive thought process," U.S. Navy veteran Tracey Sperko said.

In a phone interview Tuesday with our Milwaukee affiliate WISN 12 News, Nicholson dismissed the criticism.

"It's fake outrage. At the end of the day, they're doing it to try to cover up the mistakes of others. In this case, they're trying to cover up the many mistakes of Tammy Baldwin," he said.
