    Paul Ryan is Vulnerable, and Rob Zerban is stepping up

    Contact Rob's office to volunteer at (262)564-6920
    Congressman Paul Ryan is vulnerable in November's election. One year ago it would not have seemed possible; with Ryan being the darling of the corporate conservatives, and powerful chair of the House Budget Committee. 
    Things have changed in the 1st Congressional District. Rob Zerban has stepped up to challenge Ryan, and the race has become very interesting - as Ryan's fiscal policies, budget decisions, and financial interests make him vulnerable. The publicity surrounding the nuns' bus tour is a clear demonstration of Ryan's conflicts and hypocrisy. 
    Candidate Rob Zerban will be on to discuss this Congressional race.

    GOV. BARBOUR Quits

    in Politics

    I will not be a candidate for president next year. This has been a difficult, personal decision, and I am very grateful to my family for their total support of my going forward, had that been what I decided."Hundreds of people have encouraged me to run and offered both
    to give and raise money for a presidential campaign.  Many volunteers have organized events in support of my pursuing the race.  Some have dedicated virtually full time to setting up preliminary organizations in critical, early states and to helping plan what has been several months of intensive activity.
    "I greatly appreciate each and every one of them and all their outstanding efforts.  If I have disappointed any of them in this decision, I sincerely regret it.
    "A candidate for president today is embracing a ten-year commitment to an all-consuming effort, to the virtual exclusion of all else.  His (or her) supporters expect and deserve no less than absolute fire in the belly from their candidate.  I cannot offer that with certainty, and total certainty is required.
    "This decision means I will continue my job as Governor of Mississippi, my role in the Republican Governors Association and my efforts to elect a new Republican president in 2012, as thestakes for the nation require that effort to be successful."
