Rep. Paul Ryan to endorse Joel Pollak

July 22nd, 2010

Niles, IL--I am pleased to announce that Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) will travel to the 9th district to join our campaign at a very special event on Wednesday, September 1, 2010 at the Four Seasons Hotel Ballroom in Chicago.

Mr. Ryan is the ranking Republican on the House budget committee, and authored the "Road Map for America's future," a bold new plan to restore our financial health.

Fred Barnes of the Weekly Standard said: "If Republicans adopt [Paul Ryan's] road map as their basic ideological blueprint, it offers them the prospect of a landslide in the midterm election this year, followed by victory in the presidential election in 2012."

I am a great admirer of Mr. Ryan, and will follow his example as a young leader in the next Congress. His participation is a tremendous show of confidence in our campaign.

On the president's fiscal commission, Mr. Ryan frequently spars with my opponent, Jan Schakowksy, whose far-left economic policies are killing jobs in the 9th district.

Mr. Ryan's visit will also mark the culmination of my "Pollak Pledge Tour" around the district. I will present Mr. Ryan with the best new ideas suggested by local residents.

More details about our exciting event with Mr. Ryan will be available at and on Facebook at
