House Conservatives Make a Play for Influence in Race to Succeed Ryan

House Conservatives Make a Play for Influence in Race to Succeed Ryan

"Scuttlebutt is that Paul will have to step down from speakership soon", A GOP insider told Axios.

Ryan said he meant to serve out his term as speaker but wanted more time with his family. "He and I are good friends", said Scalise, who, like McCarthy, is a favorite of President Trump's.

The Republicans' biggest policy win since Trump took office nearly 15 months ago has been the tax overhaul approved in December, an achievement in which Ryan played a major role despite his sometimes strained relationship with the volatile president. A few months back, [after attending] church, I went to Dunkin Donuts with my sister and we ran into Speaker Ryan there.

Paul Ryan, speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, has rendered very valuable service to his fellow Americans during his 20 years in Congress.

Ryan called GOP leaders as well as Trump and Vice President Mike Pence personally on Wednesday morning to tell them the news, according to Politico.

"I don't worry so much for the Republican Party as I worry for the status of the country", he said. But I have given this job everything I have no regrets whatsoever for having accepted this responsibility. There is one woman, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, in House Republican leadership.

Ryan said that their cheery expressions were because they were celebrating all of their accomplishments, but King cut in to point out that the photograph was rather homogenous.

GREENE: Is it too early to start thinking about who might replace Ryan next year?

Ryan, the House speaker, appeared on CBS This Morning on Thursday to discuss his recently-announced retirement plans with host Gayle King.

And at least some members and a leader of the Tea Party movement have publically and privately suggested they could add to the congressional ranks after November, giving them more power in leadership voting. When former House Speaker John Boehner resigned, all eyes were on the California Republican.

King continued to grill Ryan on whether Trump's antics ever made his job more hard, asking him "do you ever feel that you had to compromise your personal values to play along and get along?" Regardless of political affiliation, the country is in "some very unsafe times", with many Americans doubting "some very iconic agencies", and having lost "faith and trust" in a model of government that the rest of the world looks to.

The 48-year-old Wisconsin politician made it official Wednesday when he announced that he's volunteering to leave his post, which is third in line of succession for the presidency, and will not be running for re-election. Comstock is seeking her third two-year term.

"While I respect his public service, numerous policies he fought to advance were deeply harmful to the American people".

Ryan and his wife have three children.
