    Though these numbers may sound impressive to some, those of us that have lived in Paul Ryan’s district realize he’s losing ground. Compared to the past, he’s not raising the money he used to. He’s having to reach far outside of his district. In the last November election, the ward he lives in voted against him, the city he lives in voted against him, and his home county voted against him. This is even more reason he has to take money for people outside his district.
