Dems target Ryan’s seat

    The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) on Wednesday announced its list of targeted races in its drive to take back the House of Representatives, and one of those 12 “Emerging Races” is in Wisconsin’s 1st District.
    Democrat Rob Zerban of Kenosha is challenging incumbent Republican Paul Ryan of Janesville.
    The DCCC said, "Emerging Races highlights candidates and districts that are making themselves competitive by running smart campaigns."
    The Democrats said the determination is based on the campaign’s ability to meet infrastructure and organizational goals and by making the case to voters that Zerban is a problem-solver who will protect the middle class if he is elected to Congress.
    Zerban, who raised more than $500,000 in campaign donations in 2011, "I am proud to receive the support of the DCCC. Here in Wisconsin, we have seen what we can achieve when we work together. Because of our hard work in 2011, more help is coming in to this district. We are seeing progressives from across the country join our fight here in southeastern Wisconsin to get rid of Paul Ryan because his ideas, and his policies, hurt this entire nation. Paul Ryan will not get a free pass this year despite his lobbyist money and status as a leading party boss. After 14 years of enriching himself and his campaign at the expense of Wisconsin’s economy and middle class families, he will finally be held accountable. I look forward to demonstrating to Wisconsin how much we can accomplish in Congress when we focus on the middle class, take off the blinders of special interest money, and work together to get results."
