House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Janesville) is finding that not only is he the premier fundraiser for his Republican colleagues and candidates, but he may be for the Democrats’ also. Mr. Ryan’s likely general election opponent in his southern Wisconsin congressional district, labor union activist Randy Bryce (D), said yesterday that his campaign raised over $2.1 million to be reported on the March 31st Federal Election Commission disclosure report due on April 15th and controls over $2.3 million in his campaign account.
While obvious that the Speaker will have as much as he needs to again prevail in November, it is clear that he will have to run an active campaign for re-election.
