House Speaker Paul Ryan is facing a up and coming Republican businessman from Wisconsin’s named Paul Nehlen, after he announced that he has launched his 2018 congressional campaign against him.
Breitbart said that this is the second time that Nehlen has challenged Ryan after losing the 2016 GOP primary in Wisconsin’s first congressional district.
Nehlen said, “Speaker Ryan didn’t help Mr. Trump defeat Hillary Clinton, and even pledged not to defend the president. But I have a message for Speaker Ryan: The American people are not done fighting for President Trump’s good agenda. That’s why I am announcing my second challenge to Paul Ryan for the nomination in Wisconsin’s first congressional district.”
That was in reference to the damning audio of Ryan during a conference call with House GOP members in which he had abandoned now-President Trump during the crucial election month of October and promised that he would never defend him again.
“I am not going to defend Donald Trump, not now, not in the future,” Ryan told his House GOP colleagues in the recording.
“Last year in my first challenge to Speaker Ryan, we managed to kill Ryan’s and Obama’s job-killing deal, the Trans-Pacific Partnership. But Paul Ryan apparently hasn’t gotten the memo,” Nehlen added in his statement. “Millions of Americans voted for President Trump, and they expect Paul Ryan to work to repeal Obamacare; end bad, job-killing trade deals; close the border; and back the President’s strong, America First agenda. But that hasn’t happened. But unbelievably, Paul Ryan has fully funded the dangerous refugee resettlement racket. That is not what we voted for.”
“Paul Ryan is a career politician who has been in D.C. for nearly two decades,” he concluded. “He may have been a nice Wisconsin boy when he left Janesville, but now Ryan is working for special interests and industry bosses, working to sell Wisconsin’s jobs to Mexico and Asia. Ryan is working hand-in-hand with multinational corporations to reduce their costs by giving them access to low-paid immigrant labor. And it is decimating Wisconsin’s economy. Wisconsin voted to drain the swamp last November, so that’s what I’m going to do.
