MADISON (AP) - House Speaker Paul Ryan's Republican challenger will be allowed on the ballot, the Wisconsin elections board said Friday, but it removed a Libertarian candidate in a different congressional race. The state Government Accountability Board ruled in Paul Nehlen's favor as it considered 10 challenges to candidates getting on the Aug. 9 primary ballot. Nehlen's nomination papers were challenged by conservative activist Orville Seymer, who argued that the longshot challenger to Ryan should not be on the ballot in the 1st Congressional District race because he had incorrect home and voting addresses on his declaration of candidacy and nomination papers.
