"Scuttlebutt is that Paul will have to step down from speakership soon", A GOP insider told Axios. Ryan's departure will not likely improve the outlook, said John Feehery, a Republican lobbyist who worked as spokesman for former House Speaker Dennis Hastert. It will also fuel speculation that Ryan is eyeing a coming Democratic surge, fueled by opposition to President Donald Trump, that could wrest control of the House from Republicans' grip. "So I've known the Ryans for a long time, and I think it's kind of sad that he is not going to run again".

U.S. Rep. Jim Banks praised Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan on Wednesday for advancing conservative causes, as well as for helping raise Banks' profile as a freshman member of Congress.

The Wisconsin Republican cast the decision to end his 20-year career as a personal one - he doesn't want his children growing up with a "weekend dad" - but it will create a vacuum at both ends of Pennsylvania Ave. He says he has given the job "everything that I have".

"He will serve out his full term, run through the tape, and then retire in January", Brendan Buck, a counselor to Ryan, Buck said in a statement. The decision comes ahead of the November 6 midterm elections that were already looking treacherous for Republicans, who risk losing control of the House, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.

"Although Speaker Ryan leaves big shoes to fill, I am confident a strong leader will emerge and continue the effort to reform Washington and keep our nation great", August said. A self-styled budget guru, Ryan had made tax cuts a centerpiece of his legislative agenda, and a personal cause, and Congress delivered on that late previous year.

City fully deserve to wrap up title, says Spurs boss Pochettino
Watford manager Javi Gracia has yet to see his side score an away goal since he took over in January from Marco Silva. Mauricio Pochettino's main problem is the absence of Danny Rose , who hasn't played that much this season anyway.

Reacting to Ryan's looming exit, Trump hailed him as a good man, who legacy will live on. McCarthy's 2015 bidding to become speaker neglected part as he didn't possess the votes from your house independence Caucus, the chamber's about conservative wing. "He genuinely cares about every American, and we share a belief that conservative ideals will help improve the lives of even our most marginalized populations". "You all know I did not seek this job".

Ryan is explaining his decision to not seek re-election as one that was the best for his family.

In the 2012 US presidential election, he was the Republican Party nominee for Vice President of the United States, running alongside former MA governor Mitt Romney.

"Stay tuned for more retirements as Republicans increasingly realise that their midterm prospects are doomed", the committee said. Comstock is seeking her third two-year term.

The Republican Party is dealing with a scramble for leadership now, and it's a pretty crucial time for the party. "Most of the retirements and most of the seats up for grabs in November (belong to) moderate Republicans".
