House Speaker Paul Ryan announces he will not run for re-election

House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wis. center arrives for a meeting of House Republicans on Capitol Hill in Washington Tuesday Dec. 19 2017

"Speaker Paul Ryan is a truly good man, and while he will not be seeking re-election, he will leave a legacy of achievement that nobody can question", Trump wrote on Twitter.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee said Mr Ryan's departure was an ominous sign for Republicans, months away from nationwide elections. Even if Republicans prevail, their majority will certainly be diminished, making the job of passing legislation through a party already torn between moderates and ideological hardliners all the more hard.

Ryan is explaining his decision to not seek re-election as one that was the best for his family. Republicans hold 54 seats in the 100-member Senate, and 248 in the 435-member House.

Republicans already face a tough challenge from Democrats to keep control of the lower chamber.

His voting record was considered to be among the conservative in the House in decades and was rated as the most furthest from the political center to be nominated by either major political party. Democrats, meanwhile, are facing about half of that number with only 18 of their members not running for re-election to the House.

The Democratic Party was more popular among likely voters in recent opinion studies.

She said Ryan's decision to drop out shouldn't change the approach for her or Bryce - or any Democrat in any other district.

Ryan, whose father died when he was 16, noted all his children are now teenagers and their "ideal weekend" was not to spend the whole time with their parents.

In fact, just weeks ago, Ryan's office was pushing back against a Republican congressman's suggestion that the GOP leader would soon step down as speaker.

Proper right here's a take a look at Ryan's virtually 20-year occupation in Congress.

Ryan, 48, cited wanting to be around his adolescent children more often. Along with Reps. Eric Cantor and Kevin McCarthy, he branded himself a rising "Young Gun" in an aging party.

In 2012, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney asked Ryan to serve as the party's candidate for vice president.

Police say the attack happened in full view of the woman's young daughter who was left distressed by the incident. The gunman then fired a shot at the very moment that Coco ran back into the driveway and jumped for the gunman.

In 2011, he gave the Republican response to then-President Barack Obama's State of the Union deal with.

Since 1999, Paul Ryan has represented Wisconsin throughout the U.S. House of Representatives. On the other hand, Republicans during his tenure were unable to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, advance the ball on entitlement reform or cut the deficit. Today, both supporters and opponents of the law call it Obamacare. 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.

Ryan's future on Capitol Hill had been a topic of conversation ahead of a hard campaign season, as Republicans try to keep the House majority.

"Whereas he did not search the place, he knowledgeable his colleagues that serving as a speaker has been the expert honor of his life, and he thanked them for the idea they positioned in him", Buck talked about.

Newsmax White House correspondent John Gizzi said on Wednesday that McCarthy, who withdrew from the race for speaker in '15 and helped convince Ryan to run, has signaled he is not interested in becoming speaker if Republicans retain the majority this November.
