Quick Observation About Jack Kemp and Paul Ryan

An interesting observation in this NewsMax article about Paul Ryan’s new book, The Way Forward:

Like any Republican with his sights on the White House, Ryan pledges fealty to Ronald Reagan. Although Ryan’s invocations of Reagan are genuine, his real hero is Jack Kemp, a legendary congressman from Buffalo, N.Y. The link is not farfetched. Ryan worked as an aide to Kemp in the interregnum between Kemp’s service in the Bush administration and his being named as the GOP’s vice presidential nominee in 1996.

Reviewers of “The Way Forward” have picked up on Ryan’s admiration for and affiliation with Kemp.
