Paul Ryan Makes Last-Minute Turnout Pitch To GOP Voters

House Speaker Paul Ryan, who reluctantly endorsed Donald Trump but refused to campaign for him, on Sunday encouraged his fellow Republicans to vote for the party’s presidential nominee.

Newsmax reported that the Wisconsin congressman, in a message he posted at CNN.com, wrote: “We have a historic chance to save our country from decline and put it back on the right track. Now we have to act on it.” After repeatedly blasting Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, Ryan pointed out that GOP congressional candidates were counting on Republicans to cast ballots to maintain the party’s control of the House and Senate.

“So go to better.gop and take a look at what a unified Republican government can get you,” the speaker wrote. “And then vote Republican — Donald Trump, our Senate candidates and our House candidates — so we can start turning things around. If Republicans do not turn out — if we sit this one out — we will open the door not just to Hillary Clinton but also a Democratic Congress eager to give her a blank check. That’s what we get if we don’t win: more scandal, and more of the same. Choose a better way. Vote Republican.”

Ryan proposed a six-point plan to reduce poverty by requiring welfare recipients to get jobs, expanding the military while “securing the border,” tapping energy reserves within the United States to “grow the economy,” upholding the Constitution, replacing Obamacare with another system, and simplifying the tax code.
