Ryan challenger Bryce launches new television ad

March 5, 2018

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Democrat Randy Bryce’s latest television ad in his campaign to take on Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan pulls from his launch video that first put him in the national spotlight last summer.

The 30-second ad released Monday focuses on Bryce’s background as a union iron worker and shows him on construction sites wearing a hard hat. Bryce says he’s the best person to represent the district because he’s a “working person.”

Bryce is being challenged for the Democratic primary by public school teacher and Janesville school board member Cathy Myers. She spent $3,000 on her first television ad last week features images of her in the classroom and other women with the message “we will not be ignored.”

Bryce’s campaign says they’re spending $100,000 on his new ad in Madison and Milwaukee.
