WATERTOWN — Protesters greeted former vice presidential nominee and U.S. Rep Paul Ryan when he arrived in the city this afternoon to support 21st Congressional District candidate Elise M. Stefanik.

Rep. Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican, is appearing at the Savory Downtown, 300 Washington St., to campaign on behalf of Ms. Stefanik, who served as his director of debate prep during his vice presidential run.

Rep. Ryan is also the author of a federal budget that proposes to cut $5.1 trillion in spending over the next decade. Protesters marching on Washington Street and asking motorists to honk their horns claim the budget proposal cuts too many public benefits, including Medicare and Social Security.
