There’s just one month left until the general elections and Donald Trump just ‘scored’ an important partner, as House Speaker Paul Ryan decided to campaign with the businessman.
Ryan, as well as several important GOP members, like Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson and other members from the state, will appear at a festival in southern Wisconsin, according to a press released released by the Republican’s office, cited by NY Daily News.
Such announcement is great for the GOP!
“Ryan will be joined by Senator Ron Johnson, Governor Scott Walker, Attorney General Brad Schimel, Treasurer Matt Adamcyzk, and Wisconsin State Party Chairman Brad Courtney”, mentioned the statement, also adding that “presidential nominee, Donald J. Trump will also join Wisconsin Republicans”.
The event is scheduled for October 8, just one day before the second presidential debate, when Donald Trump will face Hillary Clinton once again. It will be the first time when Paul Ryan will campaign alongside the GOP’s nominee since the Republican National Convention from July, when Trump was officially nominated.
Of course, it is well known that the relationship between Ryan and Trump has been more than just complicated throughout the campaign, with the House Speaker endorsing the businessman’s candidacy in July.
Donald Trump, on the other side, initially refused to endorse Paul Ryan against Tea Party’s Paul Nehlen in August, managing to cause a real scandal in the Grand Old Party. Eventually, Trump did announced his support, after several important GOP members criticized him for refusing to do it.
Once again, important Republicans criticize Trump
Ryan’s support comes in a crucial moment for the Republicans, as 30 former GOP members of Congress released an open letter this week, announcing that they will refuse to vote for Donald Trump.
“Sadly, our party’s nominee this year is a man who makes a mockery of the principles and values we have cherished and which we sought to represent in Congress,” the group wrote. “Donald Trump…has proven himself manifestly qualifies to be president.”
