MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A television ad to benefit Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kevin Nicholson paid for by U.S. Ambassador John Bolton’s political action committee is running in Milwaukee.

The John Bolton SuperPAC announced the $278,000 television and radio ad buy Monday that runs for two weeks. It comes after the group first ran the ad in January in the Green Bay market.

The ad highlights Nicholson’s background as a Marine and says he knows the importance of combatting terrorism.

Bolton’s super PAC has pledged to spend $1 million helping Nicholson defeat Republican state Sen. Leah Vukmir in the primary. Nicholson is a businessman from Delafield running for office for the first time.

The winner of the August primary will face Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin in November.
