Brian Fraley and Lisa Manna of Edge Messaging take this short podcast to comment on the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel story this morning about Republican US Senate candidate Kevin Nicholson seemingly agreeing with two unidentified men at a campaign event that Paul Ryan has a “light footprint in the state” and that Ryan’s lukewarm endorsement of President Donald Trump “is a problem.” The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel also has the tape recording online.

Brian says he can’t help but wonder if this is the influence of Steve Bannon in Nicholson’s campaign or just Nicholson’s inability to disagree with someone he wants to vote for him.

“I sense a pattern. I hope I’m wrong.”
