House Speak Paul Ryan will not seek reelection

House Speaker Ryan announces retirement

House Speaker Paul Ryan is not seeking re-election and will retire from Congress after this year, the Wisconsin Republican announced Wednesday.

Ryan faced a strong challenge for his re-election bid from Randy Bryce, a Democratic challenger for Wisconsin's 1st Congressional District seat, who boasted Wednesday that he outraised the incumbent by $1.75 million in the first three months of 2018.

Ryan, as the top Republican in Congress, played a key role in the passing of a massive tax bill late a year ago.

"The truth is, it is easy for it to take over everything in your life and you can't just let that happen because there are other things in life that can be fleeting as well: Namely your time as a husband and father Ryan said".

Responding to rumours about an imminent departure in December 2017, Ryan told Republican colleagues the was "not going anywhere".

PlayStation 5 Isn't Actually Coming Before 2020
Instead of figuring out when the PlayStation 5 will be launched, gamers should instead enjoy what the PlayStation 4 offers. Earlier this year , it was also speculated that the future PlayStation console would move to more "procedural content".

For his part Ryan insisted he was confident he was "leaving this majority in good hands with a very bright future". More than 30 have announced plans to leave by the beginning of 2019. His tone was somber, and he read directly from prepared remarks.

Similarly, Axios reports that "one of Washington's best-wired Republicans" thinks Ryan's announcement could be the final nail in coffin for the House GOP's majority.

Ryan spokesman Brendan Buck said in a statement that Ryan was proud of his achievements and ready to focus on his family. As of Wednesday morning, the most likely Republican candidate is state Assembly Speaker Robin Vos.

"Republicans" have been an unmitigated disaster, and in recent months even USA president Donald Trump has gotten in on their swamp maintenance efforts.

Days after denying rumors of his impending retirement, USA speaker of the House Paul Ryan announced on Wednesday that he was not seeking another term in the US congress. At the age of 28, he became known as one of the "Young Guns" in the Republican Party. He was former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney's running mate in 2012. "I took it reluctantly, but I gave this job everything I have". Boehner had struggled to wrangle the chamber's restless conservative wing and failed to the seal big-picture deals on fiscal policy he sought. And Trump's presidency has raised questions about the role of traditional conservatism in the Republican world.

Arizona rules colleges can't offer in-state tuition to DACA recipients
President Donald Trump has tweeted about DACA frequently after announcing a year ago he would end the program. DACA recipients in Arizona will now face a tougher time being able to finance their college education.

Trump and Ryan have not had an in depth working relationship.

The number two Republican, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, is a frontrunner for the speaker's job should the party maintain its majority, but on Wednesday he divulged little about his plans.

One source with the conservative bloc, the House Freedom Caucus, says McCarthy is, at this early stage, likely to have the support to become the next Speaker with the group's chairman Rep. Mark Meadows a front-runner to become Majority Leader. If they choose to decline the refund, it's up to the campaign to decide where the money goes, strategists said.

Vos did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Another Republican mentioned as a potential candidate is longtime Ryan family friend and Ryan backer Bryan Steil, an attorney and member of the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents.
