MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Add House Speaker Paul Ryan's primary race to the list of things turned upside down by Donald Trump.
Ryan was expected to have an easy time in Tuesday's primary against a little-known and little-funded businessman, but that was before Paul Nehlen (NEEL'-uhn) got a Twitter embrace from Trump. Now the race is on the national radar.
After that, Tuesday's top race is in northeastern Wisconsin, where GOP Rep. Reid Ribble's retirement is opening a congressional seat that could swing either way. Three Republicans are seeking to advance: Sen. Frank Lasee of De Pere, Forestville surveyor Terry McNulty and Mike Gallagher, who served as national security adviser for Gov. Scott Walker's presidential campaign last year.
Three other congressional incumbents, Democrats Ron Kind of La Crosse and Gwen Moore of Milwaukee and Republican Sean Duffy of Wausau, are expected to have easy times in their primaries.
