Paul Ryan: Don’t mess with state’s electoral set-up
Republican Govs. Scott Walker and Rick Snyder of Michigan have both been quoted as expressing concerns over changing Electoral College votes. The Virginia Legislature killed a similar proposal in committee this week. Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester, said he doesn’t dismiss the idea but it’s not high on his agenda.
Ryan, R-Janesville, said he would prefer that Wisconsin stay a winner-take-all state.
“I’ve always kind of liked the idea of being targeted as a state,” Ryan told the Wisconsin State Journal editorial board on Tuesday. “I’d hate to be a flyover state. I’d like to be in the hunt for being a targeted state. I think it’s good for us.”
