House Speaker Ryan cruises to victory in GOP primary
FoxNews.com


House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., was projected to easily defeat a longshot primary challenge from businessman Paul Nehlen Tuesday evening.

"I'm humbled and honored that Wisconsinites in the 1st Congressional District support my efforts to keep fighting on their behalf," Ryan said in a statement to The Associated Press.

Ryan's victory is a is a blow to the GOP’s populist wing, some of whom had criticized him as insufficiently conservative. Nehlen spent much of his campaign trying to tie himself to Donald Trump, but the Republican presidential nominee ended up grudgingly endorsing Ryan last week.

I was going to comment that Ryan is wildly
popular among Madison liberals, but misbtyfc
beat me to it with the following comment at the
end of the article. Read misbtyfc's astute
comment carefully to understand both how the victory
was arranged by Democrats and why the turnout was
so low. I really tells us that in order to be a successful
Republican today, be a RINO. Now we know
why conservatives were making such a big deal about
Nehelen's "courage." He has it, running against a
Moslem advocate in a left wing region, in a state that
works an open primary scam.

Wisconsin is an "open primary" state which means people can vote for any candidate they want regardless of party affiliation. Republican and Democrat primaries were being held simultaneously in Wisconsin District 1 (where Ryan was running) and in that district there were 92,965 people who voted of which 73% voted Republican while 27% voted Democrat.
In the rest of the State of Wisconsin (were Republican and Democrat primaries were being held simultaneously) 106,803 people voted of which 50% voted Republican while 50% voted Democrat.
Looks to me like Ryan should be thanking the Democrats for his landslide victory.
