Ryan Solen is Dem choice to face Paul Ryan

Posted:
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -

House Speaker Paul Ryan will be facing Democrat Ryan Solen on Nov. 8.

Solen beat Tom Breu in Tuesday's Democratic primary to advance to a formidable matchup with Ryan for his southeast Wisconsin seat. Solen is an Iraq war veteran who lives in Mount Pleasant.

Ryan will be a heavy favorite, with nearly $10 million and high name recognition and favorability ratings in his district. Solen had only a few thousand dollars on  hand.

Breu is a former plumbing engineer who lives in Janesville.
