Liberal group focuses on John Doe, budget cuts in oppo research on Walker, Ryan

The liberal group American Bridge focuses on the John Doe investigations that have touched Walker and U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan's "draconian" budget cuts in an opposition research piece it released today on the 2016 GOP presidential field.

The 206-page document covers 20 possible Republican candidates for president. The overviews include a history of the candidates' careers, their positions on a number of issues, and their history both as fundraisers and in election results.

There's also an "In Focus" section for each candidate. In Walker's, the liberal group provides an overview of the two John Doe probes, the first resulting in the convictions of six associates, aides or donors and the second one resulting in a legal fight that's now in the state court system.

For Ryan, the "In Focus" notes various proposals from his budget proposals on taxes, student loans and safety net programs.

Each candidate also has a "What to Watch" section.

For Walker, the liberal group asks how the John Does would impact his candidacy, if he would try to end collective bargaining nationally if elected, if he will "offer a more robust explanation" for why he left Marquette University without graduating and if he will "double down on his attacks on private sector workers."

For Ryan, it was how he would handle the "legacy of the failed Romney-Ryan ticket" and if he would give up his chairmanship of the House Ways and Means Committee to run.
