The union-loving ironworker, who eagerly set out to beat Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) has prevailed in the Democratic Primary Tuesday.
While Ryan is no longer running for reelection, Bryce has adopted populist policy positions endorsed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
The Cook Political Report ranks the seat “Lean Republican,” anticipating the Republican in the seat will win by 5 points. Hillary Clinton lost the Wisconsin district by 11 points in the 2016 election and former President Barack Obama lost it by 5 in 2012.
The surge of Democratic voters expected in 2018 could help Bryce prevail if Republican turnout is suppressed.
“Thank you,” Bryce tweeted Tuesday night after the race was called. “Can’t even begin to express the gratitude I feel right now. I’m honored to accept the #Democratic nomination for Congress in #WI01.”

Trump’s State Department busted helping Rudy Giuliani dig up campaign dirt against Joe Biden
The State Department assisted President Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, in setting up a meeting with a Ukrainian official to “strongly urge” the new administration in Ukraine to launch an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden.
Giuliani backed out of a planned trip to Kiev earlier this year that was meant to dig up dirt on Biden. But the New York Times now reports the former New York mayor instead traveled to Madrid to meet with a top aide to new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, with help from the State Department.
How Democrats missed a key 15-day ‘window’ to get Trump’s taxes — and they may now be blocked until after 2020
When Democrats seized control of the House of Representatives in 2018, they pledged to start holding President Donald Trump accountable — including, notably, by obtaining his tax returns. But House Ways and Means Committee Chair Richard Neal has been reluctant to aggressively use his authority in demanding the documents, as a new Washington Post report revealed Thursday, allowing the president and the administration to persist in its lawless refusal to comply.
‘It is all crazy’: CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin goes off on people who try to insist Trump’s rants are just jokes
On Thursday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin scorned the idea from President Donald Trump's defenders that rants like his recent anointment of himself as "the chosen one" are made in jest, for entertainment value.
"One of the strange things about President Trump is that nobody has ever seen him laugh, like a full laugh on camera," said Toobin. "Think about it. You never see it. And this notion of explaining crazy things he says as jokes is not — that is just not true. He does not joke. When he said 'Russia, you know, I want you to find Hillary Clinton's emails,' they tried to explain it as a joke. It wasn't. Russia went right to work trying to find Hillary's emails."
