Rep. Paul Ryan, a Republican from Wisconsin and former Republican vice presidential candidate, distanced himself from one of the most conservative leaders of his party and expressed reluctant support for one of its most embattled figures.

Chris Christie, R-New Jersey.
When can we start calling him Paul RINO?
How about right now? Actually, I’ve been thinking of him like that for a while. Ever since 2012, in fact.
