Paul Ryan, second in line for U.S. presidency, to not seek re-election

Cathy Myers, A Democrat Vying for Paul Ryan's House Seat, Says the Speaker Is

Ryan ran as 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney's running mate, and has gained a reputation over the years as a wonkish figure with a focus on limited government and balanced budgets. "But I have given this job everything I have", he said.

McCarthy had run to succeed Boehner in fall 2015 before abruptly dropping out, leaving space for Ryan to run and be elected at the end of October that year. "We both came to Congress in 1999, and I have enjoyed a great working relationship with him since we first met".

The Wisconsin Republican, who long said his ambition was his previous role as chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, will always be able to point to having pushed a monumental overhaul of the tax code through during his speakership.

Mr Ryan served more than 20 years in Congress, and while he appeared to share little in common with Mr Trump, he went on to play a central role in the current United States administration. Rep. Mark Walker, R-N.C., said an emotional Ryan "choked up a few times trying to get through" his remarks to colleagues and received three standing ovations.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a Republican from California known to be tighter with Trump, is expected to seeking the speaker post.

"This morning Speaker Ryan shared with his colleagues that this will be his a year ago as a member of the House". "He has served Janesville, southeastern Wisconsin and our nation honorably".

But some people think Trump's praise of Ryan might be too soon, because they think the House Speaker may be gearing up for a Ryan 2020 campaign.

Democrats need to pick up at least 23 seats in the 435-member House to regain the majority. Pew Research Center statistics reveal that fathers and mothers are now equally likely to say parenting is extremely important to their identity.

"Ryan was once seen as the cutting edge of the new, younger, energetic conservative wing of the Republican Party", Sabato said. "During his final months, Democrats are hopeful that he joins us to work constructively to advance better futures for all Americans".

There are two typical ways in which Ryan could divvy up the funds, sources said. The president tweeted a message of support on Wednesday morning.

The speaker met with members of his caucus on Wednesday morning.

At a news conference, Ryan cited family reasons for his decision to retire.

Mr Ryan said he would retire in January after finishing his congressional term.

And in 2016, Ryan told People magazine: "I miss things during the week, so the hardest question [my kids] ask is 'Are you going to be home?' when I know that I'm not".

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), announces he will not seek re-election for another term in Congress, during a news conference at the US.
