State Sen. Dave Craig not running for Ryan's seat

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -

Wisconsin state Sen. Dave Craig says he won't run for the congressional seat being vacated by House Speaker Paul Ryan. Craig is a former aide to Ryan but says the timing isn't right for his young family.

Republicans are searching for someone to rally behind after Ryan's abrupt retirement announcement Wednesday.

They hope to distract from the candidacy of a far-right conservative who has been banned from Twitter for posts criticized as racist or anti-Semitic.
