Speaker Paul Ryan Faces Off Against Anti-Establishment Contender Paul Nehlen
September 11, 2017
Paul Ryan has been put on notice as the Wisconsin Tea Party candidate, Paul Nehlen, seeks to unseat the unpopular speaker of the house.
Since the November elections, Paul Ryan has pushed congressional approval to an all-time low of 16%. It is fair to assume in this climate, the people of Wisconsin may be more willing to view the primary challenger, Paul Nehlen, as a viable alternative to the establishment old timer.
Mr. Paul Nehlen’s background, in contrast with the Speaker’s, is comparable to Trump. His background in business makes him an outsider, whereas Mr. Ryan made his career as a politician.
Also, as vice president for a manufacturing company, he has led the effort to bring jobs back to the U.S.A. from Canada. If promoted, those accomplishments would prove advantageous on the campaign trail.
When it comes to leadership, it can be argued that Paul Nehlen has taken initiative, whereas Paul Ryan ceded the role to Democrats. When ‘Antifa’ brought violence and began threatening free speech at conservative rallies, Paul Nehlen was quick to denounce the Alt-left group as far back as February. He even spoke out against the leftwing site gofundme.com for allowing donations to Alt-left organizations, but rejecting conservative organizations.
In stark contrast, Paul Ryan waited until Democrat Nancy Pelosi denounced the group before speaking out against the leftwing group. Also, Mr. Nehlen is quick to show his support for Trump’s primary agenda points.
Competition may prove fierce for the upcoming Wisconsin primary.
