Democrats Look to “Iron Stache” to Challenge Paul Ryan Next Year
If this year’s special elections are any indication of what’s to come, America is due for a real freak show when it comes to Democrat candidates in next November’s midterms.
The Dems went 0-4 in their “referendums” on President Trump. The last loss was the most hurtful when geeky Jon Ossoff was defeated on Tuesday by Republican Karen Handel. Ossoff had a number of things going against him, not the least being that he was Nancy Pelosi’s puppet and the verdict was crushing.
But that isn’t going to stop Democrats from fielding an array of bizarre characters more along the lines of singing socialist cowboy Rob Quist in Montana, a man who received the blessing of far-left kingmaker Bernie Sanders.
Now a similar gimmicky candidate has emerged in Wisconsin to target establishment golden boy Paul Ryan and they call him “Iron Stache”, a badass iron worker who is also a Bernie-bot.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting “Democrat and iron worker Randy Bryce challenges Paul Ryan for Congress”:
A Democratic veteran and iron worker announced Monday he will challenge Republican Paul Ryan for Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District in 2018.
The long-shot bid will pit Randy Bryce against the most powerful member of the U.S. House. Ryan, former vice presidential candidate and current House speaker, has held the district in southeastern Wisconsin since 1999.
Bryce, a union leader who served in the U.S. Army, lost races for the Wisconsin’s Legislature in 2012 and 2014 and lost a 10-way primary for Racine County Board of Education in 2013. Bryce said he’s learned from the losses and is planning to raise at least $2 million for this run.
“I’ve learned a lot,” Bryce said. “The people of Wisconsin know who I am. I have community roots.”
A spokesman for Ryan had no immediate comment.
IronStache certainly speaks the language when it comes to the Democratic party:

While Ryan is a sneaky little double-dealing weasel he remains the ultimate insider and made man by the D.C. establishment.
It is going to be extremely difficult for anyone to dislodge him from Congress let alone another Democrat based on an archetype rather than an experienced political battler who can at least give Ryan a fight.
Ryan will also once again face a primary challenge from Republican businessman Paul Nehlen next year.
