House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin offered to appear at a rally for GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump scheduled in West Allis, Wis., which was later cancelled.
Ryan said in early October he would no longer campaign or defend the billionaire’s comments following the leak of a 2005 video showing the candidate making lewd comments about women.
“We don’t know if it’s scheduled firm or not yet, but I intend to do it if he’s here,” Ryan told reporters, according to The Cap Times. “Here’s the point: we’re going from here to Mukwonago to go campaign with Mike Pence. So everybody’s schedule is a little bit in flux in these closing moments, but if our nominee comes, we’ll campaign with him.”
The speaker and Trump have had a turbulent relationship throughout the course of the election, but Ryan has maintained his endorsement and announced he voted for the nominee Tuesday.
