CNNPolitics: Paul Ryan won't seek re-election

U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan R-Janesville announced Wednesday that he will retire and not seek re-election in the fall. File

Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan announced Wednesday he will not run for re-election, saying he wants to be more than a "weekend dad" before his children graduate high school. Once she let him know that this type of display makes her feel unwelcome, the congressman said he feels bad about it too. No speaker has given up the gavel on his own terms since Democrat Tip O'Neill in 1987. The Californian began as the favorite for the speaker's job when John Boehner quit in frustration in 2015, but he was thwarted by personal problems and criticism from his party's right wing. The announcement will help Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) in his fundraising because "the Senate becomes the last bastion", the Republican said.

Ryan has not sent Trump clear message that any attempt by the president to quash the investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller is an attack on the rule of law.

He is giving up on getting entitlement reform.

Brian Fitzgerald lives in Janesville and said Ryan's justification of spending more time with family is admirable.

Scalise is viewed as more conservative than McCarthy.

His youthful appearance, commitment to physical fitness, and family portrait made him a poster boy for Midwestern values.

It is indicative of Trump's impact on the Republican Party that Ryan, the vice presidential nominee in 2012, now faces an uncertain political future only two years after being considered a rising star. Mr. Romney saw Ryan as a junior version of himself, committed to conservative principles, but also willing to work across the aisle. "And I think the Speaker's decision is indicative of that".

In the meantime, the scramble to succeed Ryan atop the Republican conference - if not the House majority - could prove intense, some said. Associates doubt he would challenge Trump in 2020.

With Ryan, that doesn't appear to be the case. "I've been here 20 years in Congress".

"I'm grateful for the president to give us this chance to actually get this stuff done", Ryan told reporters Wednesday.

Ryan certainly has his detractors. Friends say he will bide his time and see whether the political climate and party change.

Back in Wisconsin, the departure of Ryan means the GOP has a weaker grip on his seat.

Property Speaker Paul Ryan claims he'll continue being the most effective Republican in the room until slumping in January, despite calls for a direction transition and also queries from inside his caucus regarding a dragged-out course of action harming the celebration at the November mid-terms. That seat has not been at risk of flipping to Democrats since Ryan was elected, he observes.

Hi legacy includes acquiesce to President Donald Trump's un-presidential conduct.

Will he use "newfound political freedom"?

In an interview Thursday, CNN reports, Ryan was pressed by CBS News host Gayle King about the photo.

But others say that is unlikely. And while we're at it, having an effective president wouldn't hurt either.

So Paul Ryan had to defend his party on national television.

"They're middle of the road in temperament, and I think that no matter what happens in November that's a big brain drain and loss of experience in Congress for the Republican Party", said Matthew Green, a Catholic University professor who has taught on politics in the age of Trump. "If I were Paul Ryan, I'd go and do something else for a while".
