Ryan says GOP needs more minorities and women

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan R-Wis. told Republican lawmakers Wednesday he will not run for re-election

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan R-Wis. told Republican lawmakers Wednesday he will not run for re-election

Claiming he's accomplished a "heckuva lot", House Speaker Paul Ryan announced Wednesday he will not run for re-election and will retire next year, injecting another layer of uncertainty as Republicans face worries over losing their majority in the fall. The decision comes ahead of the November 6 midterm elections that were already looking treacherous for Republicans, who risk losing control of the House, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.

Ryan's decision sets up a fight for the Republican leadership in the House, with majority leader Kevin McCarthy and majority whip Steve Scalise seen as the top contenders for the speakership.

"Paul Ryan's name is right here", Halabi said as he pointed to the brick signed in 1988.

Vice President Mike Pence, a former IN congressman and governor, said Wednesday IN a statement that Ryan "was instrumental IN enacting President (Donald) Trump's agenda" and "has been a fierce defender of our military, a leader IN ushering historic tax reform through Congress, and a public servant with a heart for helping lift up the less fortunate".

U.S. Rep. Ryan Costello, a Chester County Republican (via Twitter): "Speaker Ryan has been a thoughtful and effective leader for our conference and for his constituents in Wisconsin".

Gibson says he doesn't think Ryan did much to help people in low paying jobs.

Ryan, who seemed incapable of counter arguing, simply said he wasn't happy she felt excluded. "It works better to have private conversations than public disputes", Ryan said.

Rather than go down with the ship - or perhaps suffer the same fate as Tom Foley in 1994, the last sitting speaker to lose a re-election race - Mr Ryan is reserving his seat on a lifeboat.

Despite the potentially poor timing, Ryan may have good reasons to move on.

Among its other consequences, Speaker Paul Ryan 's retirement from the House increases the chance that President Donald Trump will be impeached.

Jordan urged pushing for the cuts to Democrats' domestic priorities, along with welfare changes and tougher oversight of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which has investigated Russia's role in the 2016 United States presidential election.

Ryan, a fiscal conservative who ran for vice president in 2012 on Mitt Romney's ticket, gave no hint of his future political ambitions.

"I attribute it to Wisconsin voters standing up to special interests", said Dallet, a Milwaukee County Circuit Court judge, last week.

Ryan has decided it is time to leave Congress, according to multiple reports.

Ryan has been in Congress since 1999 and became House speaker in 2015 after serving successively as chair of the House Budget Committee and chair of the House Ways and Means Committee.

The introduction of a potential third candidacy could make the post-election closed-door vote for Republican party leader - either in late November or early December - more complicated. "And I really don't think I'll change my mind". There are none in Senate Republican leadership. He pointed to Rep. Mia Love (R-Utah), one of the few GOP women of color in Congress.
