Wisconsin Republicans gather to rally party faithful at Fall Fest

BURLINGTON – With five weeks to go before election day, Wisconsin Republicans gathered Saturday to fire up the party faithful — and warn their supporters that Democrats are ready to put up a fight.

“My big worry is that the Democrats, who really don’t like our president, are going nuts. They’re moving way hard to the left,” House Speaker Paul Ryan told the crowd at the annual First Congressional District Republican Party Fall Fest.

“Here is what they’re counting on — they’re counting on Republican complacency,” Ryan added. “I see a left that is enraged. A left that has gone off the rails. But a left that is motivated. And so we cannot allow this complacency to occur.”
