Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan tells young Republicans in Madison, Wisconsin that what's at stake in the 2016 presidential election is greater than the candidates themselves. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) House Speaker Paul Ryan speaks to young Republicans in Madison, Wisconsin about what's at stake in the 2016 election. "Beneath all the ugliness, lies a long-running debate between two governing philosophies. One that is in keeping with our nation's founding principles, like freedom and equality, and another that seeks to replace them," Ryan said. Ryan said on Monday he was no longer going to campaign for or defend Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and advised House Republicans not to support the White House candidate if they did not want to. His move followed outcry over a video that surfaced last Friday showing Trump bragging in 2005 about groping women and making unwanted sexual advances. "I know many people are still making their choice. I know some people are avoiding making any choice at all, and I don't begrudge anybody for that," Ryan said. Ryan has been facing considerable blowback from a number of his fellow House Republicans for his failure to defend Trump.
