Paul Ryan Now Says he’ll Campaign With Trump

From the Daily Caller News Foundation:

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.

Ryan is spending the final days leading up to the election campaigning alongside Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, who is in a tight race against former Sen. Russ Feingold, whom he unseated in 2010.
While Wisconsin traditionally leans Democrat, the Badger State has come into play for Trump, who is trailing by just four points according to the latest Remington poll. Trump’s running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, is scheduled to campaign in the state Saturday.
