House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., says conservatives will have to work hard to keep Wisconsin a Republican state.

The Washington Examiner notes Wisconsin shocked the nation by voting for Donald Trump rather than Hillary Clinton.

Ryan told radio host Charlie Sykes that the state is home to conservatives like himself, Gov. Scott Walker and Trump's incoming chief of staff Reince Priebus. But, he noted, the GOP, should not take voters for granted in the state.

"We have to constantly convince and persuade and our ideas are always challenged and questioned," Ryan is quoted by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "Because this is not a doctrinaire state for the left or the right. And it's also a state where the Progressive Party was founded.

"We really have an energetic battle of ideas here," he continued. "You can't just rest on laurels and assume that everyone listens to the same shows and thinks the same things. Because they don't here in Wisconsin. You have to constantly be energetic and persuasive."
