Ryan to Seek Budget Committee Leadership
U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Janesville, has announced he intends to run for ranking GOP member on the House Budget Committee.A spokesperson for Ryan said he is considered a “dark horse candidate” because he is of lower seniority than other members on the committee. His office said decisions on who will be ranking members on various committees could come as early as December.Ryan’s candidacy has garnered support of the conservative fiscal reform group Americans for Prosperity which praised him for supporting earmark reform and for voting in favor of a series of amendments designed to combat pork-barrel spending. According to the group, the subscription service Congress Daily listed Ryan and U.S. Rep. Ander Crenshaw, R-Fla., as potential candidates.
