Hi, I'm Rob Zerban. Along with President Obama and Vice President Biden, I have the unique privilege of being the other candidate who gets to defeat Paul Ryan this year.

Click here to get updates from my campaign.

That's because despite running for Vice President, Paul Ryan is still running for Congress in Wisconsin. And I'm his progressive opponent.

I've been preparing for over a year now. I have a great team and raised over a million dollars in grassroots donations -- more than all of Ryan's opponents in the last 10 years combined. But to finish the job, I need your help.

Can you donate $3 to my campaign so that we can keep Paul Ryan's extremist views out of the White House AND Congress? Click here.

Paul Ryan supports ending Medicare. I support Medicare for All.

Paul Ryan supports lowering taxes on the rich. I want the rich to finally pay their fair share.

Paul Ryan thinks the way to create jobs is tax giveaways for Big Oil, Wall Street, and other big corporations. I'm a small businessman who fights for the little guy.

Paul Ryan is pro-life. I am pro-choice. Tell me when to stop...

The point is -- Wisconsin voters finally have a competitive Democrat running against Paul Ryan. A bold progressive. And with Ryan now ignoring local voters, 2012 is the perfect moment to defeat him for good.

Please donate $3 to fuel my campaign and help me finish the job of defeating the right wing's hero. Click here.

It's been exciting to work with Progressive Change Campaign Committee members over the past year -- standing up for the 99% and fighting back for Medicare. In Congress, I look forward to being your partner as we fight for progressive change.

Click here to stay in the loop with our campaign.

Thanks for your support.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
