Speaker Ryan Will No Seek Re-Election

House Paul Ryan speaks at a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington U.S

You realize something when you take this job, it's a big job with a lot riding on you and you feel it. "So you better make the most of it".

"Even though we disagreed on most issues, in the areas where we could work together I always found him to be smart, thoughtful, and straightforward", the New York Democrat said.

In the 2012 presidential election, he was the Republican Party nominee for vice president, running alongside former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. His tone was somber, and he read directly from prepared remarks. His retirement could trigger more such announcements, imperilling the party's chances in the elections.

The move also ignites the race to potentially succeed Ryan should Republicans hold the House in November. But Ryan downplayed that it would be a distraction.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, R-Wisc. will not run for re-election, sources told the Associated Press and Axios. "We are with you Paul!"

Republicans in the room for Ryan's announcement said he cast his decision in personal terms, explaining that he wants to spend more time with his family, and noted that he was approximately his daughter's age when his father passed away.

All 435 House lawmakers and 34 senators will face the voters this November, in what will amount to a referendum on Republican control of Congress and the White House.

"We know the speakers have served a fairly lengthy period", Sabato said.

Ryan was first elected to Congress in 1998.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Majority Whip Steve Scalise have started lobbying their GOP colleagues to gain support, according to numerous reports.

Mark Meadows, head of the conservative House Freedom Caucus that played a key role in Boehner's departure, was asked by reporters if he had been approached about becoming speaker. "I considered that. But just as my conscience is what got me to take this job in the first place, my conscience could not handle going out that way". He also acknowledged that few speakers have "left on their own terms", noting that the last time it happened was when Thomas P. "Tip" O'Neill announced he would not seek reelection 36 years ago.

She says she's looking forward to having more balance in the family's life. But conservatives aren't likely to roll over to keep the same leadership team.

Shortly before Ryan met with reporters, President Trump said on Twitter the outgoing speaker would leave a "legacy of achievement".

Senator Ron Johnson (R) had praise for Ryan's efforts. "We should all be grateful for his sacrifice and understand his desire to be a full time Dad". He is the 54th Speaker of the House and has served in Congress for 20 years.

Ryan in 2016 initially hesitated to endorse Trump after it became clear the wealthy NY real estate developer would become the party's presidential nominee, but eventually did so.

Ryan's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment. "This was a hard decision to make, and I wish Paul and his family all the best in the future".

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said in a statement Ryan is an "avid advocate of his point of view".

"But I have given this job everything".
