Paul Ryan Is Worried Trump Could Derail Plans To Keep House Majority
Ryan reportedly told donors the majority could be in jeopardy because of Donald Trump.By Eugene Daniels | August 6, 2016
Right now, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan can count on a pretty solid Republican majority to keep him in his seat — but the speaker is starting to caution supporters Donald Trump's nomination might change that.
According to a report in The New York Times, Ryan warned a conference of GOP donors that "even the party's substantial majority in that chamber might be in jeopardy." Since he was talking to donors, Ryan's comments could probably be more about funneling donor money to tight House races than expressing genuine electoral angst.
