The pledge put forward Wednesday by the state party and Sen. Ron Johnson calls on the loser in the August primary to support the winner. The race between Vukmir and Nicholson has already sharply divided many in the party.

Signing the pledge gives the candidate access to the names of potential delegates to the Republican Party convention in May who will be voting on who to endorse.

Vukmir says she's proud to sign it and has "always supported the party nominee.

Nicholson adviser Kevin Nicholson says he will "of course" sign it and hopes all Republicans will unite behind efforts to defeat Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin.
