Third Democrat Joins Race For Ryan’s Seat

6/23/17 – There are now three Democrats running for G-O-P Speaker Paul Ryan’s House seat next year. Cathy Myers, who’s on the Janesville School Board, announced her bid Thursday. Myers has taught English for 23 years. She’s currently at Hononegah High School in Rockton, Illinois. If she wins the Democratic primary next August, Myers says voters could have what she calls a “clear choice between a community leader and a career politician who seems to have forgotten his small town roots.” To face Ryan, Myers would have to beat Racine County union ironworker Randy Bryce and Ohio activist David Yankovich.  Ryan faces a Republican primary against his G-O-P opponent from two years ago, businessman Paul Nehlen.
