Paul Ryan’s Challenger in Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District Launches #DumpRyan Tour
Kenosha, WI | April 13, 2016
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.”
