Are you ready to go Full Nelson?

Empower Wisconsin  | June 23, 2022

MADISON — You can’t make this stuff up.

“Populist” Dem U.S. Senate candidate Tom Nelson has employed a washed-up ‘90s rock star to write his campaign anthem.

Dubbed, “Full Nelson,” the jingle was written by Chris Barron, front man for the Spin Doctors — now performing for weddings, bar mitzvahs and apparently struggling U.S. Senate candidates.

Nelson, Outagamie County Executive, is polling well behind the frontrunners in a crowded field of Democrat candidates vying to take on incumbent Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson in November. Nelson may bill himself as “populist,” but he doesn’t seem all that popular. The latest Marquette Law School poll shows the candidate with just 7% support from likely Democrat voters.

So, looking to build Tom-mentum, Nelson turned to Barron who penned “Full Nelson” specifically for the campaign, according to the campaign.

The anthem insists that “We’re going Full Nelson.” Why? Because, according to Barron and his Spin Doctors, the liberal is “Good for the Country,” and “Good for Wisconsin.”

“The lyrics are accompanied by photos and video of Nelson on the campaign trail and at home with his family,” the campaign says. Apparently there are no photos of Barron strutting around in a goofy Guatemalan hat and sweater like he did in the video for the Doctors’ 1993 hit, “Two Princes.”

Nelson’s campaign is giddy about Barron retweeting the anthem with a real zinger about Wisconsin’s senior senator.

“We’re helping Wisconsin to Zip up their Johnson!!!” the tweet proclaims, with the hashtag #GoingFullNelson.”

We’re just relieved Nelson won’t be going Full Monty, although political desperation makes a candidate do some crazy things.
