Will Ryan cost GOP some Wisconsin House seats, too?

Joel McNally asks in Milwaukee's Shepherd Express:

If Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan can help to lose a congressional election in an overwhelmingly Republican district in New York, is there any reason to believe Ryan couldn't lose a few congressional seats in Wisconsin, including his own?

...In elections all across the country next year, just as in New York, Republicans will have to try to explain away their continued support for Ryan's proposal to destroy Medicare.

So why not in Wisconsin? Two first-term Republican congressmen, Sean Duffy and Reid Ribble, voted in lockstep for Ryan's destruction of Medicare. Voters should demand they answer for it.

And Ryan himself has a serious challenger, Kenosha County Supervisor Rob Zerban, who is launching his campaign with a petition to preserve Medicare at the pointed website

Ryan has become an important national figure, all right. He's the best campaign ad Democrats have for regaining control of the House of Representatives.
