Ryan Rundown: Ryan raises money, seeks 'mandate election'

In this week's Ryan Rundown: U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan said he worries election turmoil within the GOP could deliver "victory by default" to Dems in 2016.

With the goal of establishing party consensus early, Ryan said lawmakers will roll out a comprehensive legislative plan once Republicans settle on a candidate. He said he wants a "mandate election" in 2016 for conservative policy rather than a referendum on Democratic leadership.

Ryan said continued House passage of legislation destined for veto by President Barack Obama will highlight the differences between Republicans and Democrats. He said the legislative tactic will show voters what they can expect if they elect Republicans to Congress and the White House.

The speaker rejected the idea of a last-minute presidential bid, but speculation persists delegates could draft Ryan into the race.

Besides questions about Ryan being on the ticket, the Janesville Republican saw a considerable uptick in financial support after his election to the speakership. His campaign, Team Ryan, raised $5.3 million in the last quarter of 2015 and transferred $2.5 million to the National Republican Congressional Committee in December.

Ryan put his increased financial draw to work for Republicans by appearing recently at fundraisers in Texas and Chicago.
