House Speaker Paul Ryan, a veritable traitor who sold out every conservative in America last week when he signed off on a $1.1-trillion omnibus bill that handed President Barack Obama everything he wanted, might be close to suffering some major payback for this latest sell-out.
Writing for Crows Nest Politics, Ken Crow, former leader of Tea Party of America, urged his many followers to begin searching for a local ‘candidate willing to primary Paul Ryan in the 1st District.’
“All patriots should contact your group’s leaders and begin organizing nationwide to put down this RINO in order that he is not re-elected to his seat in Wisconsin. The Badger State patriots need to begin soliciting your State Senators, high-profile business leaders or the State Legislators who reside within the 1st District of Wisconsin.”
Crow’s poignant message got picked up by The Gateway Pundit and Fox News, and eventually made its way onto the Facebook page for the Wisconsin Tea Party.
This means, in effect, that the movement to get rid of the conservative traitor Paul Ryan has officially begun. In fact, someone already set up a “Primary Paul Ryan” Facebook page that had already accumulated over 18,000 followers.
Any challenger to Speaker Ryan will need money – and probably lots of it. Ryan already has a campaign war chest of about $5 million in funds. However, recent history has shown that it’s possible to beat a powerful incumbent, even if they’ve raised more money.
Dave Brat pulled the biggest upset in recent history when he defeated House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in the 7th Congressional District of Virginia back in June of 2014. Cantor raised $5.4 million in that election cycle versus Brat’s $206,000.
The levels of anger and frustration from conservative and Republican voters towards Congress and the President are at all-time high levels. People are tired of supporting and voting for candidates who say one thing, then do the opposite. Given recent history and voter sentiment, we wouldn’t be surprised if Paul Ryan faced a challenger in this year’s primary – and would lose this election.
Do you think that Speaker Ryan will face the same fate as Eric Cantor did two years ago?
