MADISON - Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Martha Laning released the following statement in light of Hillary Clinton's victory at tonight's debate:

martha-laning"Once again, voters saw there is only one person in this race who has the experience, judgment, and temperament to be our next Commander in Chief - and that is Hillary Clinton. During tonight's debate, she offered detailed policies that will invest in American workers, protect Social Security and Medicare, create an economy that works for everyone, and work with our partners around the world to strengthen our security at home and abroad. Hillary Clinton's experience as a lawyer for the Children's Defense Fund, First Lady, US Senator, and Secretary of State makes her, as President Barack Obama said, the most qualified person to ever run for president.

"Donald Trump simply doesn’t have the temperament to be President of the United States. Throughout his campaign he has insulted and demeaned millions of Americans, cheered on Vladimir Putin as he and Russian hackers tamper with our elections, questioned why we don't use nuclear weapons, and has said he will appoint Supreme Court justices who would roll back decades of progress.

"We must do everything we can to ensure we elect Hillary Clinton as our next President of the United States."

 
Reintroducing Ryan Solen, Paul Ryan’s Election Opponent PDF Print E-mail

paul-ryan-ryan-solenFew knew Solen, but he shares Bernie's plan for high quality health care with a universal single payer system, Hillary's commitment to education reform, an Iraq War veteran's understanding of national defense, and an independent streak all his own.


MOUNT PLEASANT, WI - When Ryan Solen won Wisconsin’s partisan primary in August and became the Democratic nominee for the 1st Congressional District and Paul Ryan’s official opponent, most people wondered, despite Solen winning 59% of the primary vote, “who is this guy?”

In short, Ryan Solen is a rising star.

Democrats like Ryan Solen because, like Senator Bernie Sanders, he wants to ensure that every American has access to high quality health care with a universal single payer system. Solen shares with Democratic nominee for President Hillary Clinton a commitment to education reform, increasing teachers’ wages, literally fixing deteriorating school buildings so students have a modern space to learn, and refinancing student loans so cost in not an impediment to education. As with Vice Presidential nominee Senator Tim Kaine, Ryan Solen personally does not want anyone to have an abortion but knows that it is a woman’s choice to do what she feels is necessary for her own body under circumstances that are different in every instance. Senator Kaine and Ryan Solen are both dedicated to supporting the laws of the United States and will support women in their decisions.

Republicans who learn about Ryan Solen are intrigued because one of his priorities is balancing the national budget, not a common platform point for Democrats. They also like that Solen is for term limits in both the House and Senate. He wants to limit Representatives to six two-year terms for a maximum of twelve years and to have Senators serve two six-year terms. Solen argues this prevents legislators from becoming career politicians and focusing more on reelection strategy than working on actual legislation to help Americans in their districts and across the country and will impose these limits on himself should he be elected.

Republicans who support Republican nominee for president, Donald Trump, have started supporting Ryan Solen primarily because they are angry about the fallout between Trump and Solen’s opponent, Speaker Paul Ryan. When Paul Ryan uninvited Trump to campaign with him at the Wisconsin GOP Fall Fest fundraiser- an event attended by Solen for the purpose of meeting with Republicans to learn more about their concerns- they started to take notice of Ryan Solen. Calls and emails to Solen’s campaign poured in asking about Solen’s stances on various issues. While, of course, Solen and Trump do not see eye to eye on many issues, Trump supporters are impressed that Solen is an Army veteran of the war in Iraq whose primary motivation is to serve his country. They also find Solen to be “the real deal”- a Democrat who may not share all their views but who is someone they can count on knowing where he stands, who is open to listening to and researching both sides of an issue, and who is extremely committed to bipartisanship and has vowed to work across the aisle to make agreements that will benefit all Americans.

Ryan Solen is not a “yellow dog Democrat”, voting straight Democrat no matter what the issue. He is an American before a member of a political party; does not play games in the high stakes world of American politics. Ryan Solen recognizes that the United States is a complicated place and, while it may appear to be divided right now, we are all just people and we all want a stronger future, we just disagree on how to get there. Solen aims to unite and work for everyone.

With support for Ryan Solen growing, this race may very well be the upset of the 2016 election.

ryan-solenSolen will join the Democratic Party of Racine County on November 8 for an Election Results Watch Party. Sees possibility of major upset of the 2016 election.


MOUNT PLEASANT, WI- Democratic nominee for Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District, Ryan Solen, will join the Democratic Party of Racine County on November 8 for an Election Results Watch Party. Solen, who lives in Racine County, will watch as the results are reported in his race against House Speaker Paul Ryan.

The party will be held at Infusino’s Banquet Hall at 3201 Rapids Drive in Racine, WI, starting at 8PM.

paul_ryan_donald_trumpRyan Solen is working hard in his first political campaign and taking on the most powerful elected Republican in the United States. His support began with Democrats eager to see their views reflected in the U.S. House of Representatives. However, in the past week he has seen his support increase dramatically with the addition of Republicans who are fed up with Paul Ryan and his falling out with Republican nominee for president Donald Trump.

This support for Solen comes in the form of pledged votes as well as donations from Wisconsin and across the country and could be the beginning of the most major upset of the 2016 election. While Ryan Solen shares few of Donald Trump’s views, Solen does consider himself to be a moderate Democrat, is committed to bipartisanship, and has great interest in hearing the opinions of all voters, not just Democrats, as he plans to represent everyone in his district if he is elected and not just those of a particular party.

This event is open to the public and the media are welcome.
