House Speaker Paul Ryan was blistered by his Wisconsin primary opponent Paul Nehlen throughout an interview with Breitbart.
Nehlen argued that more than four-fifths of Ryan’s campaign funding came from sources outside his district, claiming that Ryan had essentially “sold his vote.”
“The vast majority comes in the form of large campaign donations from inside the D.C. Beltway,” Nehlen said. “He sold his vote. He sold his vote.
“The same people that are donating to his campaign want these open border initiatives,” he added. “This isn’t a Free Trade deal,” Paul Nehlen stated.
Asked if he genuinely believed that Ryan had sold his vote, Nehlen answered: “I absolutely believe that.”
“The FEC reports back me up,” he argued. “This isn’t my contention. This is a fact.”
In essence, Nehlen called Ryan a “good salesman” who said one thing to people at home but does another in Washington.
Check out Nehlen’s first campaign ad — he could give Ryan a run for his money with this:
Nehlen called Speaker Paul Ryan “a mercenary champion of this Trans-Pacific Trade Partnership,” stating “and that’s why I’m running. … I was outside Abbott Labs just a week and a half ago … 180 employees, IT workers, Americans, have been replaced by H1-B visa holders.
“I was there with Michelle Malkin and Sara Blackwell, an attorney out of Florida who is donating her time pro bono filing EOC complaints” on behalf of the Americans losing their jobs, he added.
“The jobs aren’t going away,” Nehlen said. “They’re bringing in people to replace Americans in those jobs. And this Trans-Pacific Trade Partnership, it makes it worse. It codifies the opportunity for them to bring workers here and replace us. They won’t even have to go through the paperwork of filing H1 Visa forms.”
Ryan will have the entire GOP establishment fighting for his re-election, of course, which will give Paul Nehlen a run for his money.
But something tells us Nehlen isn’t the kind of man to back away from that challenge.
