House Speaker Paul Ryan Will Not Run for Re-Election in November

Paul Ryan announces he will not seek re-election

Paul Ryan announces he will not seek re-election

"I think he should be left to do his job", Ryan said of Mueller.

"I think it is a desperate attempt to juice a depressed Republican base", he said.

Scalise told Fox News earlier that he would not run against McCarthy, but did not officially endorse him.

"But I can tell you this: the House Republican conference is going to get a lot more conservative".

Regarding potential action in Syria specifically, Ryan also said he thought it was "important for us to help lead the worldwide community to make sure that people are held accountable for these mass atrocities".

Another name circulating as a possible Ryan replacement was House Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana, who was wounded by a gunman a year ago.

By triggering a House leadership struggle when the party should focus on defending its congressional majorities and advancing Trump's agenda, Ryan dismayed some Republicans already concerned about their prospects with U.S. voters in November.

According to Axios, the 48-year-old father-of-three has found his job frustrating, partly because of President Donald Trump.

Ryan, D-13 OH, noted on Twitter that the speaker was the 43rd Republican to announce he was leaving Congress.

He wants to spend more time with his family. There are many accomplishments and legislative victories which history should attribute to Speaker Ryan's leadership, including leading the fight on tax reform and rebuilding our military. And although he said yesterday that his retirement won't make any difference in whether someone votes for a Republican candidate or not, it also raises the question about how effective he can be in helping Republicans keep the House.

Ryan (R-Wis.) revealed Wednesday he will not seek re-election. But the timing nonetheless took some by surprise, especially those who had expected Ryan to run for re-election, then retire after the mid-term elections.

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) will leave Congress next year with a harmful legacy. "We are with you Paul!" the President wrote.

"No plans to run for anything", the Wisconsin Republican said.

But Ryan's dramatic departure - barely two years after his party, on the brink of an internal civil war, turned to him as a popular unifier between the feuding factions of conservatives, moderates, libertarians, and populist-nationalists - fits a larger pattern. "We have accomplished so much at the state level and I look forward to ensuring Wisconsin continues down that path. Unemployment is at an all-time low, the tax burden is the lowest it has been in decades, and our schools remain strong". Even if Republicans prevail, their majority will certainly be diminished, making the job of passing legislation through a party already torn between moderates and ideological hardliners all the more hard.
