Momentum Surges for Randy Bryce’s Congressional Challenge to House Speaker Paul Ryan
Reaction to Randy's message and vision has been powerful
Racine, WI — Just one day after launching his bid to unseat House Speaker Paul Ryan, Randy Bryce‘s campaign for Congress is experiencing a surge of momentum and enthusiasm from hundreds of thousands of people who want to deliver real change for working people throughout Southeastern Wisconsin and the nation.
Randy Bryce– a U.S. Army veteran, cancer survivor, 20-year union ironworker, and lifelong district resident — kicked off his campaign for Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District in a video that showcases his deep roots as a working person; his strong connection to the people of the district; and House Speaker Paul Ryan’s decision to put the interests of President Donald Trump and Washington politicians ahead of those he is supposed to represent.
Within just 24 hours, the video ping-ponged across the internet, galvanizing support and capturing the enthusiasm of hundreds of thousands of people:
- 22K views on YouTube
- 100K Facebook views
- 30K Twitter followers — up from 7,000 just one day ago
- 450K Twitter video views
Many observers are calling Bryce’s bid the strongest challenge to date against Speaker Ryan. Reaction to Randy’s message and vision has been powerful:
Throughout the video which launched his insurgent campaign, Randy lays out clearly the values he will fight for:
- In discussing with his mother her battle with a serious illness, and her fear of the enormous costs of her medication should she ever lose her coverage, Randy says that which so many Americans know and feel: “The system is extremely flawed.”
- In describing why, as a working person, he understands what people need who are missing out on real economic opportunity and who are struggling just to keep their heads above water in tough times, Randy says: “I decided to run for office because not everyone’s seated at the table — and it’s time to make a bigger table.”
- And in summarizing the need for change, and just how much Speaker Ryan has gone Washington over his nearly 20 years in office, Randy says simply: “Lets trade places. Paul Ryan can come work the iron, and I’ll go to DC.”
The video opens with President Trump, Speaker Ryan and dozens of Washington politicians celebrating House passage of the repeal of Obamacare – a policy disaster than the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates will cause 23 million Americans to lose health insurance.
