JANESVILLE, WI — House Speaker Paul Ryan issued the following statement after Debbie Lesko was declared the winner in the special election to represent Arizona’s Eighth Congressional District:

“Congratulations to Debbie on her hard-fought victory. Debbie ran a smart campaign and focused in on the issues that voters cared about, like having more take-home pay, fewer regulations, and a secure border. She is a committed conservative who will make Arizona proud, and I’m excited for her to get to Washington so she can help as we continue to advance our agenda. Her victory proves that Republicans have a positive record to run on this fall and we need to spend the next seven months aggressively selling our message to the American people.”

In addition to serving as House Speaker, Paul Ryan represents Wisconsin’s First Congressional District. For more information, please visit www.speakerryan.com.
