Rep. Paul Ryan (R) seems to be leaving the door open to a Senate bid in Wisconsin. The Budget chairman on Friday afternoon issued a statement applauding retiring Sen. Herb Kohl (D) but saying he needs more time to decide if he will run for the open seat.
"I was surprised by Senator Kohl’s announcement and want to take some time over the next few days to discuss this news with my family and supporters before making any decision about how I’m best able to serve my employers in the First Congressional District, our state and nation," Ryan said.
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
