Local News

Valley Congressman Tim Ryan said he is seriously considering running for president next year.

Ryan told CNN Wednesday night that he is looking at making a bid but is not sure when he will make a decision.

He told CNN the divided country is causing voters in areas like the one he represents to suffer.

Ryan mentioned to CNN the gap between the rich and poor as an example of this division, saying “workers want cut in on a deal here and they haven’t been for 30 years.”

He may visit Iowa and New Hampshire in the coming months to try and gauge his support.

Ryan challenged Nancy Pelosi for the House speakership in 2016 but lost.
