House Speaker Paul Ryan heard a mixture of cheers and boos as he stood before the Republican crowd at a rally in Elkhorn Saturday. Supporters of Donald Trump were angered because the Janesville Republican had disinvited the Republican presidential nominee after a recording of Trump making lewd comments about women went public.
Although Ryan referred to “the elephant in the room,” he didn’t mention Trump by name.
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker also focused on campaigns involving party members and didn’t refer to Trump, a man many Republicans have said should step aside. Vice presidential candidate Mike Pence, who was invited, decided not to attend the Republican Party Fall Fest at the Walworth County Fairgrounds.
