RACINE, WI – The Randy Bryce for Congress campaign shared a new TV ad, “Joint Agenda,” with their supporters this evening. The ad will air on national cable and Wisconsin broadcast stations starting on Monday, January 29 in advance of the President’s State of the Union address. This is the campaign’s first ad on Wisconsin broadcast. The ad can be viewed here.
“Paul Ryan has shown that he’s happy to smile along and ignore the President’s dangerous and divisive comments, as long as he gets what he wants,” said Bryce in a statement. “I was never a big Paul Ryan fan, but something in his values has fundamentally shifted recently. He passed a ‘tax reform’ bill that gives away billions of dollars to our country’s wealthiest, and then just weeks later collected a $500,000 campaign contribution from the Kochs as a reward. He refused to condemn the President’s “shithole” comment or the ad Trump’s campaign put out during the shutdown saying Democrats were complicit in murder. Twenty years in D.C. with lobbyists and donors has changed Paul Ryan. Wisconsin’s First needs a representative who personally understands their struggles and who will vote for them.”
Transcript for Joint Agenda
Paul Ryan: Mr. President, thank you for getting us where we are.
Paul Ryan: We already made that choice. We got together with Donald Trump. We ran on a joint agenda with Donald Trump. We’re with Trump. We already made that choice.
Randy Bryce: This is why we’re going to win. This is what separates us from the other side. We care, about everybody, and they don’t.
About Randy Bryce
Randy Bryce is a U.S. Army veteran, cancer survivor, and union ironworker. He was raised in southeastern Wisconsin, and went to public schools. Randy’s father was a police officer, and his mother worked in a doctor’s office. After graduation, Randy enlisted in the U.S. Army, and was posted to Honduras, where he earned the Army Achievement Medal. After returning stateside, Randy was diagnosed with cancer, which he survived, but only after struggling through the bankruptcy that came with the medical bills. Once in remission, Randy found his way to an apprenticeship as an iron worker, a trade he’s now been practicing and fighting to protect from anti-labor laws for nearly 20 years. Randy currently resides in Caledonia, WI with his son, Ben, who attends public schools like his dad. Randy joined the race for Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District in Summer 2017.
