Republicans say Janesville native and House Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) leadership job is on the line over his flap with Donald Trump.
They’re angry he’s not defending or campaigning with the presidential nominee. The GOP has been gripped with in-fighting since a 2005 video surfaced last week showing Trump describing women in vulgar and sexually aggressive terms.
Ryan hasn’t withdrawn his endorsement of Trump, but says he’ll no longer defend the nominee. The tension surrounding Ryan is significant because there’ll be a vote for Speaker next month.
