MILWAUKEE (WISN) -- Military veterans are lashing out at a Wisconsin veteran running for US Senate.

It's all due to a comment Kevin Nicholson made on a local talk radio show.

"Those veterans that are out there in the Democratic Party, I question their cognitive thought process," he said.

More than a dozen veterans gathered Tuesday on Milwaukee's lakefront to respond.

"For him to criticize my son in the National Guard, because Nicholson wants to make a few political points, that's as rotten as it gets," said protester and U.S. Army Veteran Tim Bubin.

"It's fake outrage," Nicholson responded in a phone call. "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."

Nicholson, a former Marine, is running against Leah Vukmir for the Republican nomination to challenge incumbent Senator Tammy Baldwin.
