Ever since he decided not to run for re-election in 2018, the former Speaker of the House and congressman from Wisconsin's 1st District has stepped back from public life. But like former Gov. Scott Walker, he still carries a tremendous amount of power in Republican circles, and now, he's slowly wading back into politics by weighing in on the current state of his party.
Ever since losing his bid for a third term in 2018, former Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has all but disappeared from the state's forward-facing political scene. But many people don't realize he still carries a tremendous amount of weight behind the scenes.
