Democrat Rob Zerban announced Wednesday that he is preparing for a rematch with Republican Rep. Paul D. Ryan in Wisconsinâ€™s 1st District.
Ryan defeated Zerban, a former catering company owner, by 12 points last November, when the House Budget Committee chairman simultaneously ran for vice president and re-election. Still, the last election was the â€œclosest challengeâ€ of Ryanâ€™s congressional career, according to Zerbanâ€™s campaign.
The 1st District includes competitive territory, but Ryan has easily held the seat since he first won it in 1998. One of Ryanâ€™s greatest campaign strengths is his fundraising. In the 2012 cycle, he raised nearly $5 million and spent nearly $6.7 million.
But facing Ryan â€” and his national profile â€” also proved lucrative for Zerban, who spent nearly $2.4 million.
