Replacing Speaker Paul Ryan will be no small challenge, but as voters that’s exactly our responsibility. I couldn’t be happier that Janesville native Bryan Steil has decided to run for office.
Bryan is a lifelong Janesville resident who, after graduating from UW, spent a few years working for Congressman Ryan before coming back to Rock County to work for local manufacturing companies. Bryan knows what it takes to compete in a global market. He has fought for Wisconsin manufacturing jobs here at home and around the globe. At Regal Beloit, he led high-stakes negotiations with Chinese competitors, and he opened up markets in South America. This experience will be a huge asset in Congress at a time when foreign nations are waging trade wars and looking to undercut the American manufacturing economy.
Sure, losing Paul Ryan will be a change, but we also have a great opportunity to elect somebody like Bryan Steil who understands the unique challenges we face today.
