"Twenty years in D.C. have changed Paul Ryan."

RACINE, WI – Speaker Ryan is spending his Easter recess doing two so-called “private town halls” in Texas. Ryan has not held a town hall in his District, Wisconsin’s First, since before he was elected Speaker in 2015. Democratic congressional candidate Randy Bryce released a statement on Ryan’s events in Texas today and tomorrow.

“Twenty years in D.C. have changed Paul Ryan. He’s now putting lobbyists, donors and party politics ahead of the people of the First District. You can’t represent people if you aren’t willing to talk to them. Part of being a public servant means being willing to talk to people who don’t agree with you. Right now, Paul Ryan is only talking to hand-picked Texas ‘yes-men.'”

Bryce is participating in a town hall in Speaker Ryan’s hometown of Janesville on Saturday.

    Paul “Toady for Trump” Ryan is doing townhalls in Texas not in Wisconsin! Why doesn’t he want to talk to Wisconsinites in his own district?

    Ryan’s website won’t accept comments from Wisconsin residents who do not live in his district. He won’t do town halls in his own district, but he will do town hall meetings in Texas. Something is not adding up. Maybe Ryan is planning to run for re-election in Texas?
