Republican Ryan Elected To 9th Term In US House

MILWAUKEE (AP) — U.S. Rep. and former Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan has been elected to a ninth term in Congress.

Ryan defeated Democrat Rob Zerban on Tuesday. It was the second match between the two. Zerban also ran unsuccessfully against Ryan in 2012.

Ryan has been known for his work on the federal budget but is expected to give up chairmanship of the House Budget Committee next year and shift to the powerful Ways and Means Committee as he considers a possible 2016 presidential run.

The Janesville Republican gained attention earlier this year with a proposal to merge up to 11 anti-poverty programs into a single grant program for states and the release of a book in which he described how losing his father at age 15 shaped his life.
