RINO Speaker of the House Paul Ryan , John Boehner’s hand-picked successor, is in deep trouble in his primary battle against conservative businessman Paul Nehlen, if the newly released fundraising numbers are any indication — and they usually are.
Paul Ryan, a leading amnesty proponent for illegal aliens, who has always shown the ability to raise large amounts of money from his crony big business ties, questionable relationships with special interest lobbyists, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, an anti-free market, pro-amnesty organization that masquerades as pro-business, should be able to out-fundraise a political newcomer.
However, in the recent period covering July 1, to July 20, Paul Nehlen, a political outsider, outraised Paul Ryan by more than one-third, 37 percent, and over $76,000, according to new Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings.
Over this period, Nehlen raised $279,048, while Ryan raised only $202,583, an embarrassment for someone with the big-moneyed special interests attached to Ryan, who was first elected 18-years ago and is seeking his tenth term representing Wisconsin’s First Congressional District.
“The people of Wisconsin realize the importance of this race. Speaker Ryan has sold out his constituents in favor of large special interest donors and has lost the trust of his constituents. ” Nehlen commented after the release of the fundraising numbers.
“For almost two decades Speaker Ryan has stood on the side of big Washington donors instead of alongside the people of Wisconsin’s first district.” Nehlen continued. “The momentum in this race is clearly in our favor, and on August 9th our grassroots campaign will send a message across America – it’s time to put America first.”
“With our vote on August 9th, Wisconsinites will defeat Ryan’s job-killing TPP deal, we will defund Obama’s illegal executive amnesty, we will stop Ryan’s open-border agenda, and we will secure jobs and a brighter future for Wisconsin and all of America.” Nehlen concluded.
Nehlen’s cash haul is an indication of voter anger towards establishment RINO Ryan, part of the GOP establishment cabal known as the “Surrender Caucus” responsible for funding 100 percent of every leftist wet dream of Marxist Obama, including Obama’s illegal amnesty program and the nuclear deal with Iran. This deal gave the Iranian Islamic terrorist state $150 billion, which even John Kerry admits will be used to fund terrorism against America and Israel — not to mention fully-funding the disastrous Obamacare.
Nehlen’s fundraising victory will be crucial with the primary date of August 9, less than two weeks away, rapidly approaching.
Paul Ryan has repeatedly dodged and ducked Paul Nehlen’s multiple challenges to debate, hoping to complete two decades in DC on the coattails of a fawning media. Although Ryan has an abysmal and liberal voting record, he is still painted as a “conservative” by his Democrat media fans.
A primary loss by Paul Ryan would be historic. The last sitting Speaker of the House to lose a primary election was former Speaker Tom Foley of Washington state in 1994, ending 30 years in office.
Before Foley’s loss, you have to go all the way back to 1862 to find a sitting Speaker defeated.
