State Senator Steve Nass (R-Whitewater) issued the following statement encouraging Bryan Steil to run for Congress to replace Speaker Paul Ryan in Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District. Mr. Steil is considering a candidacy and his decision should be announced within the next few days:
“I call upon Bryan Steil to run for Congress because he is a conservative reformer. Mr. Steil has proven during his time on the UW System Board of Regents that he will fight for Wisconsin’s middle class families by challenging the antiquated policies of our state’s public higher education system.
In fighting for reforms in the UW System, Bryan has not been afraid to buck the established order amongst Regents and System Administrators. Bryan Steil is one of a few Regents that I can count on keeping his word to fight for the best interests of the taxpayers and tuition-paying families.
I trust Bryan Steil to take the conservative fight to Washington, D.C., on behalf of the people in this congressional district.”
