If you’re Republican Rep. Paul Ryan, the secretive efforts by Republicans in the Wisconsin legislature to gerrymander districts to the benefit of Republicans certainly paid dividends.
Paul Ryan will still have a job, having defeated challenger Rob Zerban in his most competitive race since he first won election. What is getting very little attention in the mainstream media is that Ryan failed to carry his home communities of Janesville and Rock County. Zerban won his home County of Kenosha and Ryan’s home County, Rock. Not surprisingly, Ryan has the GOP-friendly redistricting and Waukesha County to thank.
