Palin pushes support for Speaker Ryan’s primary challenger Paul Nehlen

Following GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s endorsement of House Speaker Paul Ryan’s re-election bid, former Alaska governor and 2008 vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin parroted earlier comments she made supporting Ryan’s primary challenger, Paul Nehlen.

Palin reinforced support for Nehlen on her Facebook page.

Appealing voters to support Nehlen, Palin posted: ¬†“Wisconsin, please vote for this man ‘of the people’ this Tuesday!

In early May, Palin told CNN she was backing Nehlen over Ryan’s disrespect to voters in his Wisconsin district.

The Wisconsin primary is scheduled for August 9.  Recent polling places Ryan ahead of Nehlen by 66 points.
