Paul Ryan hints at whom he'd back to replace him as speaker

16 April 2018

"I like to think I've done my part", House Speaker Paul Ryan, 48, said of his almost two decades in Congress and his announcement to retire after this year.

"We are one of the places that Paul does frequent in Janesville".

"We can all read between the lines", Dent said.

A top GOP fundraiser, Eric Tanenblatt, said he expects Ryan to remain a force in a tough cycle. "Enough donors from the old Romney-Ryan world will write checks to Ryan to save the majority".

Ryan's decision accelerates the ongoing competition among his deputies to become the leader of the GOP in the House. Some key players reportedly are House majority leader, Kevin McCarthy of California, and the House majority whip, Steve Scalise of Louisiana. "I've been here 20 years in Congress". But it is widely known that Trump enjoys a close relationship with McCarthy, whom the president once publicly referred to as "my Kevin" and has invited to weekend retreats in Florida. The thing is, I feel content because I've actually gotten a lot done. "He's ready to go if/when Ryan steps aside".

"Janna and I do every two years, we before the filing deadline decide whether we're gonna stay or not".

Rep. Walter B. Jones, R-N.C., said chances of keeping the House majority are "probably 50-50". If we lose focus on that, Nancy Pelosi will be speaker.

Facebook shows dangers of giving up our privacy
Look, I'm not condoning what Mark Zuckerberg and those working in his Facebook fiefdom did in the mishandling our personal data. That included everything folks had on their Facebook pages, possibly including private direct messages between users.

Right. And I luck him good wish.

It's still too early to say just what the impact of the legislation will be. "I think he should be left to do his job", Ryan said of Mueller.

And there was little on the legislative agenda for the rest of this year. He had almost $2.3 million in the bank at the end of the first quarter. That makes $4.75 million in total donations.

But he also never faced a challenger as well-funded and organized as Bryce. Scalise has more appeal among the aforementioned Freedom Caucus wingnuts, but he's also seen as a loyal chain-of-command type, and has pledged not to mount a direct challenge to McCarthy. "He may just want to put those rumors to rest and bow out gracefully".

Democrats began to evoke Ryan in campaign spots, seeing him as an easier target than Trump in some districts.

Donald Trump won the district by more than 10 percentage points.

Both Democrats and moderate Republicans warned against such an outcome.

Ricciardo was driving like a man possessed, braking nearly impossibly late to squeeze past Hamilton at the hairpin on lap 40 . Renault's Nico Hülkenberg was in sixth, with his team-mate Carlos Sainz in ninth and Kevin Magnussen's Haas in tenth.

More than 40 House Republicans are leaving the chamber to retire or seek other offices, including a number who have voiced concern about the elections and intense dissatisfaction with the state of Washington under Trump.

"He set the stage for us with his knowledge and his leadership", Roe said.

Mr Ryan is by all accounts a good man. "I don't know, so that is the rumor mill from last week". With few actual accomplishments Paul Ryan was somehow placed on a pedestal as some gifted intellectual.

"Some say his departure could possibly happen even sooner", CNN reported. He will serve out his full term (or "full my serve term", in his confusing words), but after that, he's out of there.

But the career decision Ryan announced Wednesday morning amounts to a forecast of political weather for 2018 and beyond. Democrats now control just 49 seats in the chamber, with prospects for only a handful more in the most optimistic election scenarios.

"Speaker Ryan is committed to retaining the House Majority and he plans to continue traveling on behalf of our members and candidates throughout the 2018 midterms".

Dr Green, the Catholic University professor, said it is not uncommon for a party to support its President "pretty much on anything". Of course, a decent person does notwear the label "racist" as a "badge of honor", but I suspect that Brownstein would not characterize the President as a decent person. The Paul Ryan of two years ago would have seemed an obvious choice.
