Anyone who has worked in construction has probably gotten to know an iron worker or two. They are fearless, except when it comes to electricity. Maybe that's why we got along so well.

An iron worker from Paul Ryan's district just launched a campaign to unseat the Trumpcare Troubadour. His name is Randy Bryce. https://randybryceforcongress.com/about/

Maybe Randy will invite the man with no callouses on his hands to the jobsite for a stroll along the I-beams. I'd give Pauly about 5 minutes.

The problem is "blue dog" Democrats get elected but then when they get to Capitol Hill, They are put in the corner and whipped to do their party's bidding.

He doesn't run for re-election until 2022.

Is the iron worker starting his campaign for the 2022 election?
Paul Ryan is a Congressman, not a Senator. He's up for reelection every two years.

That's because they're outnumbered, for now.

I'm not sure this guy would qualify as "blue dog", but as a union electrician I gotta cheer the man on.

A union member who favors single payer is not a blue dog. He's a old fashioned New Deal democrat.

Nehlen is running against him again as well. I prefer him.

And the other Democrat who had declared his candidacy has now ended it and endorsed Bryce.


Quote:
David Yankovich, an Ohio activist who announced he would move to the district to challenge Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday and backed Bryce after a discussion over dinner Thursday night.

“I still believe stopping Paul Ryan is critically important, but after spending time with Randy Bryce, it's clear to me that he is the right person for the job,” Yankovich said.

I guess I will say good luck to him and I am not one to say no way Jose cause I might have to eat my words, but I think everyone, especially the Democrats who are being realistic know the chances of Ryan getting beat are about 10%.
