If Paul Ryan lost his seat on August 9th and his speakership there would be nothing short of a political revolution in the House of Representatives.For Republicans removing Ryan would end the cronyism of DC. For Democrats it would create chaos among their enemies like never before.
Both groups may soon have a chance to come together to take down Paul Ryan as he faces off against his first real political fight.
We’ve focused a lot on Paul Ryan’s corruption and controversial lobbyist associations but we haven’t really discussed the likelihood that Paul Ryan may actually lose his primary race and that Democrats voting in an open primary may be the deciding factor.
Ryan is current polling under 50% though PredictIt.org has him winning his re-election by 93%. Both of these can’t be true.
Wisconsin’s 1st congressional district is only slightly Republican — an R+3 on the Cook Partisan Voting Index — but it voted for Barack Obama in 2008. Interestingly it only narrowly voted for Mitt Romney in 2012 — 52% to 47% — even though Paul Ryan was on the presidential ticket.
The district does not look like Paul Ryan’s would be America. For starters it’s 91% white and mostly blue collar. In other words Paul Ryan is out of step with the district especially on trade.
McAuliffe: Clinton would flip-flop on TPP. https://t.co/NTG7eDUSez And she'll get no resistance from Paul Ryan. VOTE NEHLEN!

Immigration is a harder issue to fire people up about given the racial demographics in Wisconsin. Fellow Wisconsinite Governor Scott Walker has opened up yet another consulate for Mexico immigration isn’t really that large an issue. Yet.
Democrats should vote for Paul Nehlen (or more precisely against Paul Ryan) if only to cause chaos with the Republican leadership.
There’s no heir apparent to Paul Ryan were he to lose thanks to GotNews.com investigations into Kevin McCarthy’s affair with Renee Ellmers.
Who could forget when Mississippi Democrats delivered the primary election for Thad Cochran?
An open primary could mark a close for Paul Ryan’s political career.
I don’t know of a single opportunity that has presented itself where a party has had an opportunity to cause chaos and remove the Speaker of the House of an opposing party.
History could be made!
