12:49 am
thank you for your support and efforts. i am a fifth-generation janesville native, and i have been honored to serve this congressional district since 1998. it has been one of the best experiences of my lifetime, and i am humbled that so many want to see me continue on their behalf. the people here, they know me well. they know that i believe that to serve is to work to become part of the solution, not be part of the problem. they share my desire for political leadership that is inclusive, not divisive. they look at the horizon, and they look for hope, not fear. most of all, they want someone who works to effectively advance our founding principles. look. there is a lot of real frustration in this country. there is a lot of anger that washington is just not working and that seems irrevocably broken, and people want to see congress and their elected leaders tackle the tough
12:50 am
problems, not duck those tough problems. they are sick of the paralysis, and they are hungry for results. and all too often, washington fails to provide those results. in times as uncertain as these, it is easy to resort to division. it is simple to prey on people's fears. that stuff sells, but it does not stick. it does not last. most of all, it does not work. around here, we look beyond the noise and the static. our strength comes from the principles on which our country was founded, self-government and liberty. our inspiration comes from the notion that the condition of your birth does not determine the outcome of your life, and our desire is to see everyone get ahead and that our children are left better off, and so because we want to bring people together and not divide them, because we want to break the gridlock, not perpetuate it, because we want fresh ideas, not outdated ideas, republicans are
12:51 am
offering a better way to fix this country's big, pressing problems. by taking a better way, we can reignite our nation's economic engine. we can lift people out of poverty and get them on the ladder of opportunity. we can restore our constitution. we can have real patient centered-health care, and we can keep our country safe and free. this is how we turn this passion of the moment into a hard-won future, through ideas, through inspiration, through inclusiveness, through an agenda that we can be proud of, through an agenda that can unite people. so we will take this agenda to voters across this country this fall, and i am confident they will reward our efforts. between now and november, i am committed to doing everything i can to make sure that the status quo, which is not good enough, is not continued, because we can do better. we are going to make the case that house republicans are
12:52 am
offering new ideas for a new day, and let it be known that we cannot afford another four years like the obama years, and let's be very, very clear. that is exactly what hillary clinton and her party are offering. we can get this country back on track. we can tackle the country's biggest, most pressing problems before they tackle us. we can restore the optimism that is there in that small business owner from janesville. we can restore the optimism that is in the heart of that farmer, from elkhorn, that is in that worker that gets up at 6:00 to work at the tool and dye in racine or kenosha. they want their american dream, and i'm going to do everything i can as a representative from the first congressional district and as speaker of the house to try to make that possible. i just want to end with this.
12:53 am
i want to thank my employers, the people i work for here in the first congressional district, for hiring me to fight on their behalf. i simply want to say thank you very much for your confidence. i appreciate it. questions. how about some local guys , charles benson, i thought i heard you. >> do you think your landslide victory here sends a larger message that donald trump is doomed in november? speaker ryan: i do not think it means that he is doomed in november. people in wisconsin know me very, well. look. you know me, charles. i am a local guy. people know that i mean what i say and say what i mean, and i do not do it in a mean way, and i think that is the kind of politics, the kind of policies that wisconsinites reward. i would not ascribe anything other to it than that.
12:54 am
how about bauer. i just want to get some local folks. i thought i heard bauer. ok. yes. that is not even a question i will bother entertaining. there is no point in having that conversation. >> up against donald trump -- what is your reaction to donald trump saying about the second amendment -- speaker ryan: i have been a little busy today. i heard about this second amendment quote. it sounds like a joke gone bad. i hope he clears it up quickly. you should never joke about that. i did not hear the comments. i only heard about the comments. >> all are calling donald trump dangerous.
12:55 am
speaker ryan: look. i think it is very clear that the trump-pence ticket will put good judges on the supreme court, and we will find far better receptivity of our gender agenda that we are trying to get on track to fix this country's problems than the hillary clinton administration. that much we know. frank. let me go to frank and then kelly. >> [inaudible] speaker ryan: no, i do not see any point to it. you get to the end zone, and you act like you have been there before. i have not even thought about that. look. we knew we were going to do well. we received the vote we were hoping and expecting all along, and that is just kind of how -- the outcome is exactly what we were hoping for and expecting, and desperate candidates do desperate things for attention. i think that is what you saw here. kelly? yes. welcome back.
12:56 am
>> [inaudible] speaker ryan: you're talking about the question? i have not even heard it. i am not going to make a comment more than what i have heard. no, i do not want to do it that way. pretty busy today. with any endorsement for anyone, there are never blank checks. let me say it this way. i believe here in wisconsin, we tell people what we believe our principles are and what we will do if we get elected, and then like what happened here in wisconsin, we did it. that is exactly what we're trying to do here as house republicans. we have taken our principles, liberty, free enterprise, upward mobility, equality, and applied them to the principle of the day
12:57 am
and offered a better way, offered an agenda so that the country, which does not like the path we are on, actually has a better path from which to choose. that is the kind of agenda we are offering the country. we believe that is what people are hungry for in the nation, and that i think has been validated right here in the first congressional district. thank you very much. i appreciate it.
