Solen Will Not Challenge Ryan in 2018

(AP)–Democrat Ryan Solen says he will not seek a rematch with House Speaker Paul Ryan in the 1st Congressional District of Wisconsin, which includes Kenosha, next year. Solen said in a statement Sunday that personal health issues prevent him from committing the time needed to run an effective campaign. He said he wants to step aside and let another candidate try to take back the district. Ryan, who was first elected to the House in 1998, easily defeated Solen 65 percent to 30 percent in 2016. The Republican speaker from Janesville amassed 9.9 million dollars to Solen’s 8-thousand-500 dollars heading into the election. Solen said he wants political writer David Yankovich to seek the Democratic nomination to challenge Ryan in 2018.
