A Wisconsin millionaire has had enough of Paul Ryan and has decided to run for his seat and retire the man he says has betrayed Wisconsin and the country. Paul Nehlen announced today that he is pledging himself and a goodly sum of his personal fortune to defeat Paul Ryan. The Wisconsin Tea Party has been searching for a viable candidate to run against the current Speaker of the House. In the past, Nehlen has contributed to Ryan but now says he sees that Ryan is just another big government, open borders type of guy. He also criticized Ryan’s support for the job killing trade agreement so poorly negotiated by Barack Obama.
“Paul Ryan’s embrace of big government spending, his continued support of illegal immigration and imported workers, and his championing of the job-killing trade deal known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership betrays me, this district, and this nation.”
On Tuesday night, Donald Trump held a campaign event in Janesville, Wisconsin, the hometown of Paul Ryan and at the mention of Ryan’s name, the crowd broke out in a loud boo. If he is that unpopular in his own hometown, you have to believe Nehlen has a chance to win.
Nehlen knows it will not be an easy task to take down Ryan who already has a war chest of five million dollars. But he’s also aware that just two years ago, Dave Brat knocked of Eric Cantor, the number two man in the republican House. It can be done. Paul Ryan may be well known in his district, but Nehlen is no stranger to the people there. He is a businessman and inventor who has relocated jobs from Canada to the United States, many of them right there in Wisconsin.
Nehlen also has a sizable fortune that he’s willing to tap into. Ryan will have to face him on equal terms. Nehlen explains why he thinks the time is right to oust Ryan:
“He’s failed to put America’s security and American jobs first. I’ve had it. We’ve all had it.”
“Ted Cruz and Donald Trump have become frontrunners in this presidential election cycle because they have dared to communicate an anti-establishment message. They won’t be alone. I will bring the fight straight to one of the most powerful establishment players in Washington, taking him on right here in Wisconsin’s 1st District. Paul Ryan is a career politician. It’s time that career came to an end.”
Good luck Paul Nehlen. Kick his arse.
