Paul Ryan: Republicans Shouldn’t Be Avoiding the Convention

paul ryanIn an interview that aired on CNN earlier tonight, House Speaker Paul Ryan advised Republicans not to avoid the GOP convention no matter what happens.

As Speaker, Ryan will be the convention chairman and so will oversee the entire process, whether Donald Trump or Ted Cruz ends up as the nominee. John McCain, who’s not a fan of either, has indicated he’ll skip the convention.

Ryan said tonight he hasn’t heard about people skipping the convention, but it is indeed not just McCain making that consideration.

“If you were planning on going to the convention, you should go,” Ryan said. “This is our convention, making our nominee, so I think everybody should participate.”
