Paul Ryan Edging Out Primary Challenger By A Mere 66 Points

If Paul Ryan thought it was a good idea to wait so long to reluctantly endorse Mr. Trump, he’d better think again. He’s about to take a serious drubbing from his Wisconsin primary opponent, whose name escapes me even though I just read it.

Jessie Hellmann, The Hill:

Speaker Paul Ryan is expected to dominate in his primary election on Tuesday even without the endorsement of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

A Remington Research Group poll released Friday shows 80 percent of voters support Ryan in his Wisconsin primary, compared to 14 percent who back challenger Paul Nehlen, a conservative Trump supporter.

Ah, Paul Nehlen, that’s his name. I was thinking maybe they were both named Paul, but I couldn’t really remember.

Trump really ticked off Reince Priebus earlier this week by saying he hadn’t decided yet whether to endorse Ryan. (Which is the second-funniest thing Trump did this week.) Now we’re hearing that Trump might endorse Ryan after all. Or… he might not. Nobody really knows what Trump is going to do, least of all Trump. That’s why you should vote for him. He’s totally unpredictable! (Also, he’s definitely going to build a wall and kick out all the Muslims, just like he promised.)

Oh, and tomorrow Ann Coulter will be in Wisconsin to campaign with Paul Nolan, or whatever his name is. So that’s nice. It’s good to keep busy.
