Bryce Campaign Calls on Ryan, NRCC to Return Wynn Contributions
RACINE, WI – The Bryce Campaign released a statement calling on National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) and Speaker Paul Ryan to return any contributions they’ve received from Steve Wynn, who stepped down on Saturday as the Republican National Committee’s finance chair following accusations that he sexually harassed several of his employees. Bryce is a Democratic congressional candidate challenging Speaker Ryan in Wisconsin’s First.
“It’s been two days since several women came forward to accuse the Republican’s National Finance Chair of systemic workplace sexual harassment and Paul Ryan has said nothing,” said Communications Director Lauren Hitt. “He should make clear the reported behavior is unacceptable, and he and the NRCC should return any contributions they’ve accepted from Wynn.”
According to reports, the NRCC has collected at least $106,000 from Wynn. The NRCC repeatedly called on Democratic candidates to return contributions from Weinstein, among others.
