Copy-Ryan, Pence to share stage for Sen. Johnson in Wisconsin
MUKWONAGO, Wis. (AP) - House Speaker Paul Ryan and Mike Pence are set to share the stage at a Wisconsin rally to help incumbent Republican Sen. Ron Johnson in his tight re-election battle.
Pence was to appear at the Saturday rally in Mukwonago, a southeastern Wisconsin village about 30 miles south of Milwaukee. Pence is coming as Johnson is making a late push to hold onto his seat in a close race against Democratic former Sen. Russ Feingold. Polls show the race to be about even.
Pence's appearance with Ryan comes after the Indiana governor refused to say whether in a National Review interview whether he would back Ryan as speaker. Ryan on Friday said he intends to seek the post again.
Ryan has angered some conservatives by refusing to campaign with Trump.
