JANESVILLE, Wis.— Once again House Speaker Paul Ryan refused to consider replacing Donald Trump as the Republican nominee in November.

"That's not a question I will even bother entertaining," he responded when asked if he was weighing the option.

Ryan held a short news conference Tuesday night after trouncing his primary opponent, Paul Nehlen. With 60 percent of precincts reporting, Ryan is carrying 80 percent of the Republican vote.

Nehlen was counting on Trump supporters and anger with Washington to catapult him over the House's top Republican but Ryan's hold on Badger State's 1st District was too strong.

Ryan dismissed that his definitive win is a bad omen for Trump.

"I don't think it means he's doomed in November," Ryan answered.

As Ryan spent the day with family in his hometown on Tuesday, new questions about Trump's fitness for office arose when he was accused of encouraging violence by gun rights supporters.

"By the way, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks," Trump said at a campaign rally in North Carolina. "Although the Second Amendment people — maybe there is, I don't know."

Ryan said was not up on the latest controversy but suggested that Trump was not encouraging violence.

"It sounds like a joke gone bad," Ryan said. "I hope he clears it up quickly. You should never joke about something like that.
