I have written recently that we need all Republicans, Independents and Democrats in the First Congressional District of WI and vote in the August 9th Primary for Paul Nehlen who is challenging incumbent Paul Ryan (R-Wall St.)
Defeating Paul Ryan is not out of the ordinary, just take a look at NC where incumbent, former tea party darling, Renee Elmers lost in her primary.
Rep. Renee L. Ellmers (R-N.C.) lost her bid for reelection Tuesday, becoming the first GOP congressional incumbent to lose a seat in 2016.Ellmers, who was elected in 2010 amid the tea party takeover of the House, lost in a special primary election to Rep. George Holding (R-N.C.) in North Carolina’s 2nd Congressional District, which includes suburban and rural Raleigh.Ryan recently made headlines for endorsing Donald Trump for President, calling him a racist and then continuing to endorse the Donald. That upset his fellow Republicans who do not think anything Trump has done is racist.
Holding won with over 53 percent of the vote with 96 percent of precincts reporting, according to the Associated Press. Ellmers was barely clinging to second place ahead of Greg Brannon, edging him by little more than 200 votes.
Ryan, the Congressman from Janesville, appeared at a closed door fundraiser in New York(FYI:New York is not in his district), where about 300 wealthy donors, who pay good money for access, were disgusted with his support of Trump:
One of the toughest questions for Ryan came from Meg Whitman, the chief executive of Hewlett-Packard and a longtime friend of Romney's who helped bankroll a Republican anti-Trump super PAC this spring. Whitman asked Ryan how he could endorse someone with, in her judgment, such poor character and whose campaign has been based on personal attacks and division. According to two people present, Whitman said Trump is the latest in a long line of historic demagogues, explicitly comparing him to Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.Ryan easily explained that away by letting them know he has no character or values, and stands for nothing:
Ryan explained the difficult political situation he was in, as the leader of House Republicans. While spending a couple of weeks last month deliberating about an endorsement, many of his members increased pressure on him to back Trump. Many of them represent districts where Republican voters are strongly supportive of Trump, Ryan explained.Realizing that Ryan stood for nothing, greatly appealed to this crowd:
One attendee stood up to plead with Ryan, "Will you please run for president in 2020?" The room erupted in applause.
Paul Nehlen has a website up where he chronicles some of the biggest failures in Paul's career!
So do we!
In the words of Charles Pierce regarding Paul Ryan: Biggest. Fake. Ever.
Here is his challenger Paul Nehlen's latest ad:
Vote for Paul Nehlen on August 9th!
