Gayle King Grills Paul Ryan on Lack of Diversity in GOP

Reports: Ryan to Retire From Congress

During a press conference on Wednesday, Ryan announced he will retire after this Congress ends in January because he wants to spend more time with his family.

The speaker is by far the most prominent figure fleeing Congress in a long season of Republican retirements. He began seriously considering leaving the post back in December, before Congress passed the sweeping tax overhaul he helped conceive, according to aides familiar with his thinking.

"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". "Others may try to spin it that way, but I don't see it that way".

The party not controlling the White House historically wins about 24 seats in a midterm.

Just winning a draw and trying to get a forecheck going, create a little energy... "And I think we work hard to fix those things". Like all those making the trip south for the game, Smith will be battling some severe road and weather conditions along the way.

"They're middle of the road in temperament, and I think that no matter what happens in November, that's a big brain drain and loss of experience in Congress for the Republican Party", said Dr Matthew Green, a Catholic University professor who has taught on politics in the age of Trump.

Democrats are feeling increasingly confident in their chances.

Bryce had already been named to the national House Democrats' list of top challengers in Republican-held districts.

When Ryan returns home, he still visits Halabi's restaurant. Ryan's departure will not only give him time with his family - those who know him see the politician's proverbial excuse for leave-taking as having reality in his case - but also the opportunity to try to cleanse himself of the stain left by a low and dishonest political moment.

"Look. I'm not going to try and help sell some books here", Ryan responded, maintaining during the exchange that he did not know the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director well. 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.

A protracted leadership fight could make that worse.

With the House, Senate and White House not always in agreement, Ryan seems to have been successful in finding middle ground.

"You realize something when you take this job", Ryan told reporters on Capitol Hill on Wednesday morning. If the Mueller findings are damning enough, however, at least a few of the more moderate GOP senators will abandon him-as will some percentage of Trump-friendly but not Trump-fanatical voters. A self-styled budget guru, Ryan had made tax cuts a centrepiece of his legislative agenda, and a personal cause, and Congress delivered on that late previous year. He will step down from the House speakership as the personification of conservatism's decline.
