Paul Ryan’s retirement A ‘self-promotion’ that makes sense

Doing so, however, could risk alienating Republican conservatives such as Representative Jim Jordan, a leading member of the right-wing House Freedom Caucus, at a politically delicate time given the looming leadership shake-up in the House and November's elections that have Republicans struggling to persuade voters of their fiscal conservatism. I look forward to ensuring the 1st Congressional District continues to be represented by a Republican. Some House Republicans have grumbled that Ryan should step down now, to avoid a six-month internecine battle to replace him, according to a Politico story.

"It's not a total shocker that Paul Ryan is choosing not to run for reelection, or that he saw his days in Washington as being limited", says Casey.

"Whip Scalise's focus remains on moving our conservative agenda forward and maintaining our Republican majority", said Chris Bond, a spokesman for the Louisiana Republican.

Ryan expressed gratitude for having served as leader of the House Republican Conference since 2015, a post he reluctantly took after his predecessor, John Boehner, departed under pressure from a conservatives.

King also pressed Ryan about his relationship with Trump, with the speaker insisting that he and Trump worked well together, despite disagreeing on some issues.

Sebastian Vettel: No intention to hold Verstappen back
He's an incredible driver so he just needs to fine tune and take a little bit of aggressivity out, and it's just too much. Verstappen, whose teammate Ricciardo put on a superb overtaking display to claim victory, accepted full responsibility.


He was GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney's running mate in 2012. He has hauled in $54 million so far this election cycle.

But a top GOP fundraiser, Eric Tanenblatt, expects Ryan to remain a force in a tough cycle. "This is going to make every Republican donor believe the House can't be held". "I understand his decision to return to Wisconsin and his family, but I will dearly miss my friend".

Democrat Randy Bryce, a colorful ironworker who has cultivated an "IronStache" moniker, had been Ryan's best-known challenger, drawing liberal support from around the country. Janesville school board member Cathy Myers is also running in the Democratic primary. That includes $2.1 million in the first quarter of 2018. The only declared Republican was Paul Nehlen, who was banned from Twitter for a series of posts criticized as racist or anti-Semitic.

On immigration, Ryan said he "would like to see a border security solution" paired with the immigration measure, but he said Democrats should accept a plan that they already rejected.

"It's like Eisenhower resigning right before D-Day", Tom Davis, a former Republican congressman from Virginia who once headed the House GOP's campaign committee, told the Associated Press.
