MILWAUKEE (AP) — U.S. Rep. and former Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan has been elected to a ninth term in Congress.

Ryan defeated Democrat Rob Zerban on Tuesday. It was the second match between the two. Zerban also ran unsuccessfully against Ryan in 2012.

Ryan has been known for his work on the federal budget but is expected to give up chairmanship of the House Budget Committee next year and shift to the powerful Ways and Means Committee as he considers a possible 2016 presidential run.
