Rep. Paul Ryan, the chairman of the House Budget Committee, has endorsed Richard Hudson in his 8th congressional GOP primary.
Ryan, the chief architect of the GOP budget and a potential vice presidential candidate, said Hudson “will make the tough decisions necessary to put this nation back on the road to prosperity.''
“Richard understands the need to cut spending, reform government and balance the federal budget,” Ryan said. “He'll combat crony capitalism and help restore America's commitment to free enterprise.''
Hudson, a former congressional aide, faces Scott Keadle in the July 17th primary. The winner takes on Democratic Rep. Larry Kissell.
