Trump Tweets All-Male, All-White Photo With GOP Congressional Leaders

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

Ryan dismissed concerns that his retirement may affect Republican efforts to keep its majority in the House.

After 20 years in Congress, Ryan noted, he wants to spend more time with his wife and three teenage children. Trump showed impatience with Congress' pace in dealing with his proposals, and Ryan had to deal with a president who shared little of his interest in policy detail.

But it appears the 48-year old Ryan, who was effectively drafted to be speaker following the announcement that Republican John A. Boehner of OH would be stepping aside, will last a little less than three years in the job that he assumed October 29, 2015. "We have accomplished so much at the state level and I look forward to ensuring Wisconsin continues down that path. Unemployment is at an all-time low, the tax burden is the lowest it has been in decades, and our schools remain strong".

Both Democrats and moderate Republicans warned against such an outcome. "So when I look at that picture I have to say, I don't feel very celebratory, I feel very excluded".

That could mean that a candidate with a solid bloc of votes, even if he or she were to finish third in the initial vote, might have the influence with his or her backers to give another candidate a margin of victory - possibly in return for support for another Republican post, a seat at the leadership table.

They're starting by targeting 25 GOP-held seats where Democrat Clinton received more votes than Republican President Donald Trump in 2016.

AS admitted the European champions went from "the panic to the semi-finals", while Marca simply believed: "It was a penalty". Cristiano Ronaldo kept his cool to to slot the penalty passed Juve sub keeper Wojciech Szczesny and send Madrid through.

House conservatives told reporters after Ryan's announcement that they want him to be bold in his final year as a legislator by seeking the entitlement reforms and budget cuts he failed to achieve in the last spending bill passed by Congress.

When giving examples of what kind of recruitment he's been involved with, Ryan mentioned Rep. Mia Love, the Utah Republican whose parents are Haitian immigrants and whose criticism of the president is well-known.

Ryan's sudden lame-duck status also could send a shockwave through donor circles that are relying on his leadership at the helm of the House majority. "It's just another issue that's floating out there, and obviously there's going to be some competition for his successor".

However, a lot of "former" congressmen have moved on to the presidency, and come January 2019, that's exactly what Paul Ryan will be. Janesville teacher Cathy Myers was also running on the Democratic side. That includes $2.1 million in the first quarter of 2018.

The only declared Republicans so far are white supremacist Paul Nehlen, who was banned from Twitter earlier this year for a series of posts criticized as racist and anti-Semitic, and Nick Polce, an Army veteran who co-owns a security-consulting firm.
