House Speaker Paul Ryan campaigns with Pence in sign of GOP unity

WASHINGTON (TheBlaze/AP) -- House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Donald Trump's running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, have joined together in a sign of Republican unity.

They appeared at a rally Saturday in Wisconsin's most conservative county — just one month after Ryan said he would no longer defend or campaign with Trump following the Washington Post publishing audio of Trump speaking extremely lewdly about women in 2005.

Both Pence and Ryan said it's time for Republicans to "come home" and vote for Trump. Pence heaped praise on Ryan, calling him a friend and great conservative leader.

Just days earlier, Pence refused to say whether he thought Ryan should be re-elected as speaker. However, Ryan did confirm that he would seek to be re-elected Speaker upon the next Congress being sworn in.

Earlier Saturday, the Trump campaign announced that another rally in Wisconsin — this time with Trump himself — scheduled for Sunday was cancelled, citing scheduling conflicts.
