There are probably a decent amount of people in the United States right now who want Paul Ryan to not be a congressman anymore. While it’s not like Ryan will be leaving Congress overnight or anything, a strong and convincing competitor is the first step to achieving what many may think is necessary to get things back on track in DC. Regardless of political beliefs though, Ryan’s newly introduced challenger Randy Bryce is a formidable everyman of an opponent and his first campaign ad announcing his candidacy for Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District is truly incredible to watch.
No, seriously. Spend the two-plus minutes to watch the full ad above and see for yourself.
Done? Great. The ad is an emotional plea in some spots, a powerful admonishment of the current political status in Washington in others, and overall less of an announcement of Bryce’s candidacy than a warning to Ryan that his seat is not as safe as he may think after all. The entire thing starts by tying Ryan directly to the president’s policies by showing a clip of Trump congratulating him on a “job well done” and then segues into Ryan saying that people can’t always get everything they want when it comes to healthcare policies.
