WISGOP Senate candidates overshadowed

A U.S. Senate race that began in the shadow of another campaign was ending that way too Monday as GOP candidates toured a state already fired up about native son Paul Ryan joining the presidential ticket.

Normally a four-way primary for an open Senate seat would be the focal point of the political season in Wisconsin, but not this year.

What Are Paul Ryan’s Chances of Becoming President?

Of course, this is a one-size-fits all calculation, which doesn’t consider anything about Mr. Ryan specifically. The fact that he is quite young, that the Republican Party lacks an obvious successor other than him, and that he commands the respect of both the party base and the party establishment, all work in his favor in terms of running for and winning future nominations. Whatever happens this year, he is likely to be a major part of the American political landscape for a long time to come.
