Speaker of the House Paul Ryan Stumps for Handel in Georgia
Speaker Ryan Comes to Atlanta
Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives,Paul Ryan, told Atlanta voters on Monday May 15th to vote Republican in next month’s special election for Congress.
Speaker Ryan is linking the Democratic candidate in the surprisingly competitive House race to the California liberal who leads the rival party in the House.
“The left and Nancy Pelosi … are trying to hit you with an avalanche of television,” Ryan said, to drum up support “for a guy who does not share your values.”
Ryan delivered the message right beside Republican Karen Handel, saying her opponent, 30-year-old Jon Ossoff, is a liberal just like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.
Ryan’s visit comes amid polls that show a tight race in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, where Jon Ossoff has become a national face for opposition to President Donald Trump.
