Editor’s note: Last month, we interviewed U.S. Rep Paul Ryan about his work in the House of Representatives (HERE). Today, we visit with Democrat Rob Zerban, Ryan’s opponent in the Nov. 6 election. We’ll meet with both men again in the fall for our election preview story.
At first glance, you might think Rob Zerban was a conservative. His family struggled to get by as he was growing up, but he went on to start two successful businesses, then sold them by the age of 40 with enough money to retire.
What makes Zerban different is that he’s a Democrat.
And, he’s running against one of the most formidable opponents in the country.
Zerban, of Kenosha, is challenging incumbent Republican Paul Ryan of Janesville in the Nov. 6 general election for Wisconsin’s 1st District Congressional seat.
Success or failure, says Zerban, will come from zeroing in on voters’ concerns over changes to Medicare in the Republican budget authored by Ryan.
