MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan says Wisconsin's recall election against Republican Gov. Scott Walker is the second most important election in the nation this year.
Ryan said Monday the June election is a national trendsetting election that's only second behind the presidential election in November.
Walker, Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, and four GOP state senators are being recalled for a Walker-proposed law that stripped most public workers of collective bargaining rights.
Ryan says if Walker loses, it will discourage other governors and state legislatures from having the courage to take on structural budget challenges. He says he will actively campaign for Walker.
Ryan spoke to a crowd of members of the Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce Monday in Milwaukee.

Ryan has authored a conservative budget that Republicans pushed through the House recently and is certain to play a prominent role in the fall campaign for the White House.
He's endorsed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who's closing in on the nomination.
