RACINE -- U.S. Senator Ron Johnson will run against Wisconsin Democrat Russ Feingold in the Senate race this fall, just 100 days away.

"We want to win an election so that we can put these solutions in place to improve people's lives, to fix our country's big problems," said House Speaker Paul Ryan.

    Voters vote Ryan OUT BY A LANDSLIDE. He is a traitor to his past positions.
    1. He intends to vote for TPP trade agreement shipping more US jobs overseas judt like NAFTA, Chinese and the Korean trade agreements.

    2. He intends to let Islamic Terrorists into US, HE REFUSES TO STOP REFUGEES FROM KNOWN COUNTRIES INFILTRATED BY ISIS until each refugee can be VETTED for known ISIS ties or cleared for not having ISIS ties.

    3. He voted for exactly what Obama wanted in current year budget… continued funding for planned parenthood, funding to continue allow DHS to let illegals across the border with directives to border patrol agents to catch and release AND NOT DEPORT , etc etc etc.

    4 his position is to vote for amnesty in 2017. Allowing illegals to continue to take American jobs.

    Plus more and more and more reasons

    Kick Ryan the bum out now!!!
