A mustachioed ironworker with a kickass climate plan could replace Paul Ryan. On Wednesday, House Speaker Paul Ryan announced he will not be seeking reelection come November. That means his seat in southeastern Wisconsin is up for grabs — and a Democrat named Randy Bryce, whose formidable and bristly mustache earned him the nickname “IronStache,” is angling to get it.
Bryce has already raised $4.75 million, mostly from small donors. The fact that he’s a union man and an army veteran appeals to the conservative base of Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District.
A Green New Deal, i.e., massive investment in green infrastructure.
