Paging Paul Ryan

Wisconsin Democratic Senator Herb Kohl announces retirement.


  1. Feels more Feingold-y. Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee is a better slot than juniormost Senator, especially for an idea man without executive ambitions. Probably a bad electoral environment for a Wisconsin Republican looking to move up in any case.

  2. I’m with this Rojas on this. Ryan has already secured a base in the House and will be able to advance his agenda in one way or another through the Budget Committee or Ways and Means. Running for the Senate would be difficult in 2012 and I don’t think he’ll step into the Senate with the same status he has in the House.
