Zerban sees Ryan's VP run as more of the same
WALWORTH COUNTY Rob Zerban, the Democratic challenger to Rep. Paul Ryan in Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District, weighed in on Ryan being chosen as the vice presidential candidate for Mitt Romney, saying voters won’t want to support the overhaul of the Medicare system under Ryan’s plan.
“Now that Paul Ryan’s personal ambition has clearly trumped his interest in the First District, I have no doubt he’ll find himself out of a job come November,” Zerban said in a release from his campaign office. “One Wisconsinites and voters across our country learn the truth about Ryan’s radical plot to end Medicare as we know it, defund women’s health care, and preserve tax breaks for millionaires, they’ll vote against him not just once, but twice. In the coming weeks, our campaign will work with President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden to continue getting the word out on Ryan’s indefensible record, and building momentum to ensure victory on Election Day.”
According to Wisconsin State Statute 8.03.2, candidates for president or vice-president may keep their name on the ballot for another office.
