This is great! More citizens need to take it to the establishment politicians who promise one thing to get elected and then do something totally different once in office. Paul Ryan needs to go and it sounds like this guy is the one to do it! 

A wealthy businessman with tea party ties confirmed Sunday that he is mounting a primary challenge to House Speaker Paul D. Ryan, saying that after donating to the Wisconsin Republican’s past campaigns he feels “betrayed” by the speaker on trade deals and immigration.
