According to Tom Sofield of Levittown Now, Speaker Ryan was the featured guest at a fundraiser in Upper Makefield last night for PA-8 GOP nominee Brian Fitzpatrick.
Ryan had previously indicated that he would campaign for the Republican candidate. In his speech, he described a conversation he had with Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick.
“You better not leave us hanging. You better go get us a leaner version,” Ryan stated. “I didn’t know he was going to get his own brother.”
“[I’m] proud to support Brian Fitzpatrick and I think he would make an effective representative for Pennsylvania’s 8th Congressional District,” the Speaker added in a statement.
“It’s an honor to have Speaker Ryan’s support of this campaign and belief in the importance of bringing my unique background as an FBI counter-terrorism and anti-corruption Special Agent to Congress,” Fitzpatrick responded.
The 8th Congressional District represents all of Bucks County as well as parts of upper Montgomery County.
