Longtime D.C. insider and media superstar Paul Ryan won big time in his Wisconsin primary on Tuesday. The Republican Speaker of the House easily defeated local businessman Paul Nehlen in a badly needed victory for the establishment in the year of the outsider with the barbarians already inside the gates and pounding on the castle door. Congressman Ryan walloped the upstart who was able to ride a wave of populist anger all the way to the day that voters decided that casting their lot with the globalist career politician was preferable to taking a leap of faith.
The Hill reports “Ryan wins primary by huge margin”:
House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is projected to easily win his GOP primary, surviving a highly publicized challenge.
Ryan on Tuesday defeated businessman Paul Nehlen in the primary for the Wisconsin First District seat he’s held since 1999.
have been honored to serve this 1st congressional district since 1998,” he said during a press conference Tuesday night.
“It’s been one of the best experiences of my lifetime and I’m humbled that so many want to see my continue to work on their behalf.”
Ryan said people in Wisconsin know him well.
“They know I believe that to serve is to work to become part of the solution, not be part of the problem
“They share my desire for political leadership that is inclusive, not divisive. They look at the horizon and they look for hope, not fear.
For a time it appeared as though the powers that be were sweating as GOP nominee Donald Trump toyed with Ryan by delaying his endorsement – to squeals of outrage – and Saint Paul backed off on his support for passing the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) in the lame duck session this year. But it was just too big of a rock to roll for the challenger as David was smashed into pulp by Goliath.
The media will most certainly spin Ryan’s win as a sign that the Trump revolution is over and the nation’s political “leaders” can get back to business. The are trade deals to be approved as well as finding a way to give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, the out of state interests that flooded Ryan’s district with money will be looking for a return on their investment.
Now that he has survived his challenge, Ryan is free and clear to revoke his endorsement of Trump without the risk of suffering any political damage which the media has been egging him on to do.
Will he do it?
