Paul Ryan is on the Wisconsin ballot running for both VP and for his current House seat, WI-01. He could win both elections, or neither, or win one and lose the other. If the Republicans win the White House it is almost certain Paul Ryan would also win his House race. Talk about a coat-tails effect. So what would happen under that scenario?
Paul Ryan would have to resign one office or the other. Of course that means he'd resign his House seat. A special election would be called quickly to fill that seat. The GOP candidate would certainly win. The special election would come in the wake of a huge GOP victory and with a huge GOP warchest. So who would that candidate be?
His name is Reince Priebus. Yes, that Reince Preibus.
Reince Priebus grew up in the WI-01 district and still owns a home here. He ran for the WI state senate in 2002 against Fabulous Fourteen Hero Bob Wirch. Reince Priebus ran Gov Scott Walker's campaign in 2010. Reince Priebus has the job he has today as his reward for Scott Walker's victory. If Romney / Ryan wins this year, Reince Priebus' reward will be Paul Ryan's WI-01 seat.
Don't let your children grow up in a world which contains a Representative Reince Priebus. GOTV
