  •  Its still pretty easy (1+ / 0-)

    Because while he is from Janesville, Waukesha is what accounts for most of his margin. He beat Zerban by 42K votes, he beat him in Waukesha alone by 24K. Also, he neighbors two of the most Democratic districts in the country, the D+21 WI-04 and the D+16 WI-02.  

    Also, Ryan actually lost Rock county, which is where Janesville is, to Zerban.

    •  Kenosha & Racine (0+ / 0-)

      I took a crack at a map once, and it wasn't that hard to get a district that put Kenosha and Racine in with most of the City of Milwaukee. If they did that, and put Janesville in the 2nd, the 1st would be solid R with or without Ryan.

    •  compared to some urban districts (0+ / 0-)

      D+16 is nothing.

      ...better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity, than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference. -FDR, 1936
