Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is now insisting that he won’t seek the GOP nomination at the brokered convention, another dodge for the ambitious Wisconsin congressman. While reluctant Ryan plays his coy and evasive games in Washington – where he is a political rock star – efforts to topple him at home are picking up steam. Businessman Paul Nehlen who is challenging Ryan for his seat in the upcoming primary has launched the “Dump Ryan” tour and is featuring a big yellow dump truck that will traverse the 1st District to make the case that voters should put America first by pulling the chain to flush Ryan.
The Conservative Treehouse reports “Paul Ryan Challenger Kicks Off “Dump Ryan Tour” – Businessman Paul Nehlen “The True Reformer”…”:
Starting today, the Nehlen for Congress campaign is taking the message of Paul Ryan’s betrayal on the road with the #DumpRyan tour. A large dump truck emblazoned with the #DumpRyan message has begun touring Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District in order to build awareness of the ways Ryan has sold out his own district.
“Wisconsin’s 1st District has deep roots in manufacturing and industry, in design and engineering,” noted Paul Nehlen, Ryan’s primary challenger. “We’ve been a powerhouse in these respects. But Paul Ryan is now undermining us at every turn—on spending, on trade, on immigration, and more. He’s broken every single promise he’s made to us. A lot of us, me included, have had to ask ourselves why his votes no longer line up with our interests. We’ve had to ask ourselves who exactly Ryan is representing, because it’s clearly not us any longer.
“It turns out that his campaign finance reports explain the discrepancy between what Paul Ryan says to us here at home and what he does when he’s in Washington. Eighty-three percent of Ryan’s funding comes from outside of our district—and of that 83 percent, 65 percent has come in the form of large donations from in and around Washington D.C. Paul Ryan isn’t representing us anymore—he’s representing his special-interest buddies in D.C. The #DumpRyan tour is a powerful way to shed light on that fact.”
The public will be able to follow the #DumpRyan tour on a corresponding website, DumpPaulRyan.com. A map will detail where the truck is, where it’s headed, and where it’s been.
“We encourage people not only to follow the travels of the #DumpRyan truck, we look forward to seeing them at various stops around the district,” Nehlen said. “We’re going to provide a lot of information, and we’re going to have fun doing it. This campaign will continue to bring the fight to Paul Ryan all the way to Election Day.”
Nehlen looks to capitalize on the anti-establishment sentiment that has vaulted billionaire insurgent Donald Trump to the front of the GOP presidential pack and resulted in a pitched battle by the D.C. racketeers to beat back the challenge. Ryan is an integral part of that corrupt cabal and was booed by attendees at a Trump rally in his district before the cheesehead counter-offensive whacked him in the Wisconsin GOP primary last week. The challenger is trying to make his case that Ryan is screwing his own constituents in favor of special interests waving fistfuls of dollars and points out on his website that:
Approximately 83 percent of Paul Ryan’s campaign funding comes from outside of Wisconsin’s 1st District. And of that 83 percent, 65 percent of his funding comes straight from Washington, D.C. and Alexandria, Virginia.
Paul Ryan isn’t representing our district. He’s representing the big businesses and big banks that pour money into his campaign coffers. It’s their agendas he’s carrying forward with his votes in Congress…not ours.
Sadly it’s going to take a lot more than a yellow dump truck to topple Ryan, the establishment’s golden boy who just hauled in a whopping $17 million in
graft contributions. It was advance payment for his shepherding of the anti-American, job-murdering, Obama backed Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) that ‘lyin Ryan is going to join forces with El Presidente to deliver after the election is over.
