    but his district must have gone GOP.

      He's pretty well gerrymandered in there. See puddytat's diaries on WI redistricting.

      Also, sigh.

    •  Sort of a weird district (2+ / 0-)

      Ryan's district includes old industrial cities with high unemployment, like Kenosha, Racine, and Janesville. But it also includes lots of big Chicago money in Walworth County. A fair number of Ryan's constituents have stronger to ties to Chicago than to Wisconsin, and by Chicago I mean the ultra-rich exurbs, not the city itself. And these people vote their pocketbook. If we put in a grandfather clause, saying that only people whose grandfather was born in Wisconsin could vote, it'd be goodbye Paul Ryan in the blink of an eye.
