House Speaker Paul Ryan plans to tell the Republican National Convention that the country can make the changes it needs only with Republican majorities in Congress – and Donald Trump in the White House.
The Wisconsin Republican also will call for unity for the GOP and for the country. And he will offer a contrast with the “failed progressivism” of the Obama years.
That’s according to a preview of the speaker’s remarks released by aides ahead of Ryan’s nighttime speech. He will also talk about the “sense of urgency” of this election.
Ryan will be among several congressional leaders taking the stage in Cleveland Tuesday night. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell also will speak.
