Sarah Palin rushes to the defense of Donald Trump
As quoted in Sarah Palin says she will work to oust House Speaker Paul Ryan over Donald Trump snub. (Madison.com, 5/9/2016)
Wisconsin's 1st Congressional District, which Paul Ryan has represented since 1999, includes all of Racine, Kenosha, and Walworth counties and portions of Milwaukee, Rock, and Waukesha counties. The red portion of the district can be considered areas where Trump is particularly weak. Ryan's portion of Milwaukee County includes the City of Franklin, which, politically, might as well be located in Waukesha County.
Voters in 4 of the 6 counties favored Ted Cruz in Wisconsin's April 5th GOP presidential primary. By substantial margins.
My guess is that most of Paul Ryan's well-tended and faithful base are just fine with this 'snub'.
