WATCH: ‘Iron Stache’ Randy Bryce Launches Uphill Bid Against House Speaker Paul Ryan

Ironworker Randy Bryce is committed to unseating House Speaker Paul Ryan in the 2018 Congressional race, though he faces an uncertain battle against the House’s top Republican, who has held the seat since 1999. On Bold TV, Bryce denounced Ryan’s decision to stop holding public town halls, and called himself a candidate who is “actually concerned with what’s going on in the district.”

“If you’re afraid to face the people that elected you, based on what you’re doing, that’s a problem,” Bryce said.

Bryce, a Democrat nicknamed “Iron Stache,” made headlines last month when his viral campaign ad announced his bid for Ryan’s Wisconsin-01 seat. The video featured Bryce’s mother, who suffers from multiple sclerosis. Bryce is particularly concerned with ensuring that Americans have access to health care.

Though Randy touted his fundraising prowess on Bold TV, he still faces the formidable war chest of Speaker Ryan: the Associated Press notes the incumbent has $11.15 million in the bank for his re-election. Speaker Ryan defeated Democrat Ryan Solen 65 percent to 30 percent in 2016.

Bryce’s job as an ironworker has also informed his campaign platform, which Bryce described as “one in support of working people.” Safe worksites and higher wages are some of his initiatives. Just yesterday, the Working Families Party formally endorsed Bryce’s run.

According to Bryce, the people of District One in Wisconsin consider him “one of us” who “packs a lunch, goes to work and literally builds our community.” Outside of the WFP’s endorsement, Bryce said he has received a “tremendous” amount of support from working people within the district, as well as people in all fifty states. Last week, Bryce’s support grew when opponent David Yankovich dropped out of the Congressional race and instead endorsed Iron Stache.

“We had a common goal before we joined forces, and it’s just going to get stronger as a unified front for the same mission,” Bryce said.
