Like Donald Trump, he wants to be the Republican establishment's worst nightmare.Ryan, the most powerful elected Republican in the country, is the epitome of that establishment.While many Republican operatives fear Trump's tumultuous presidential bid will hurt House and Senate races this year, a handful of candidates like Nehlen are embracing Trump's message, although not always the man himself.In New Hampshire, where Trump won the nominating contest, or primary, by 20 points, Jim Rubens, a former Republican state senator who has endorsed the billionaire businessman, is attempting to unseat incumbent Senator Kelly Ayotte.In Arizona, another state Trump won, state senator Kelli Ward is challenging veteran Senator John McCain by talking up securing the border and courting voters at Trump rallies, although she has not endorsed the presidential candidate.Still, analysts and political operatives believe Republicans unhappy with Trump as the nominee won't vote in the general election, potentially causing Republicans to lose their congressional seats to Democratic contenders.Trump has frequently criticized Ryan for the $1.1 billion budget deal struck with Democratic President Barack Obama last December.
