MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Former House Speaker Paul Ryan says that Republicans will lose the presidential election if Donald Trump is the nominee and that he expects hard-right followers of Trump to force a government shutdown within days. Ryan spoke Tuesday at an event on the University of Wisconsin campus. He left office in 2019 after 20 years representing a southeastern Wisconsin district in Congress. Ryan says he hopes that another Republican nominee can gain momentum early next year to overtake Trump after the first primaries. And he says Republicans threatening to shut down the government are nihilists who don’t care about governing.
