Vice presidential nominee Mike Pence will hit the trail in Wisconsin with House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) on Saturday, despite the uneasy relationship between Ryan and Donald Trump.

Politico reported Friday that Pence would join Ryan and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), who is locked in a tight reelection battle, at a campaign event at Field Park in Mukwonago.

Trump has singled Ryan out for declining to lend full-throated support to his campaign, criticizing him as a “weak” and “ineffective” leader.

Pence has a much warmer relationship with the Wisconsin congressman, who he has known for 15 years. While he initially kept quiet about whether he would back Ryan for another term as speaker, Pence’s spokesman said this week that he “100 percent” backed his reelection.

  1. Shorter Ryan: Trump is plague and should be avoided. Because I am a man of principle, I voted for him anyway.

  2. May we never forget that Paul Ryan endorsed Donald Trump for President of the United States of America.

  3. Lots of intellect there… IQ might be over 200.
    Total, of course.

    OT: any particular news about Trump today? Hillary is shooting up on electionbettingodds.com again.
