Ex-Paul Ryan Staffer to Run for Old Boss’ Seat

A former staffer to House Speaker Paul D. Ryan announced he would run for his former boss’ seat in Wisconsin’s 1st District.

Bryan Steil, who serves as a regent for the University of Wisconsin, said he would run as a “problem solver,” the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

“The chattering class in Washington gets paid to identify problems. For the past nine years, in manufacturing, I got paid to solve problems,” he said.

Steil is the general counsel to Charter NEX Films, a manufacturer in Milton, and was appointed to the board of regents by Gov. Scott Walker.
