Speaker Paul Ryan fields questions from students at Badger High School

MADISON — House Speaker Paul Ryan took questions from high school students during a stop in his southeastern Wisconsin congressional district.

Ryan fielded the questions from Badger High School students in Lake Geneva on Friday.

Ryan also toured Prestige Paints in Delavan, the hometown of Gov. Scott Walker.


Ryan has been busy making stops in his congressional district in recent weeks, touting a Republican tax reform proposal and answering questions about President Donald Trump's firing of FBI director James Comey.

Ryan has defended the firing and rejected calls for the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate Russia's involvement in the election.

On Saturday, Ryan is slated to speak at the Wisconsin Republican Convention in Wisconsin Dells.
