Paul Ryan's opponent / Democratic challenger
Rep. Paul Ryan's ambitious budget blueprint has become the epicenter of the fiscal debate in Washington, simultaneously amplifying the 41-year-old's personal star power within his own party.

But it's also drawn him an early Democratic challenger who is building a campaign around the House Budget Committee chairman's plan to redesign the Medicare system.Kenosha County Supervisor Rob Zerban has already signaled his intentions to run and plans to formalize his campaign in the coming weeks.

And the timing is important. With Ryan's plan to roll back trillions in spending and replace defined health care benefits for seniors with subsidies for private insurance in front of the House this week, Zerban is attempting to seize the moment.

"Rep. Ryan's agenda will hit Wisconsin seniors where it hurts the most - their wallets. Ryan believes seniors should pay more money for less care. Ryan is wrong. His plan would put Wisconsin
seniors and our economy in jeopardy. Wisconsin deserves better. My message to Rep. Ryan is simple - keep your hands off our seniors," Zerban said in a statement Tuesday.
