Speaker of the House Paul Ryan speaks to the media on Capitol Hill in Washington U.S

Ryan emphasized that he will serve out his full term and retire in January. Ryan will continue to act as House speaker through the beginning of next year.

In the 2012 US presidential election, he was the Republican Party nominee for Vice President of the United States, running alongside former MA governor Mitt Romney. Throughout Gallup polls from 2012 to 2016, more Americans viewed him favorably than unfavorably.

Kiriakou suggested that perhaps Ryan resigned in to avoid sharing the fate of Tom Foley, who was speaker of the House from 1989 to 1995 and the first speaker since 1892 to lose a re-election race.

Targeting the Republicans, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee said that Ryan's exit will be followed by more step-downs from Republicans.

Ryan's plans have been the source of much speculation and will set off a scramble among his lieutenants to take the helm.

Eric Staal and his line of course must be better than they were in game one, but again, that is an easy finger point situation. He beat Jason Zucker down the boards and bested goalie Devan Dubnyk on the blocker side over this right shoulder.

Over the course of the past year and change, Ryan's agenda has been set by the president's Twitter feed rather than the legislative calendar. Around the same time, 86% of Democrats said they approved of the ACA.

Since announcing Wednesday that he would finish his current term but not seek another, Ryan has been criticized as an enabler of Trump. The record number of retirements - up to 39 with Ryan's announcement - has already sent signals the party isn't confident in its chances. These findings are similar to CNN's December poll results based on party identification, in which 12% of Democrats and 66% of Republicans viewed Ryan favorably.

Ryan, who has had a hard relationship with Trump, thanked the president for giving him the chance to move the GOP ahead.

King tried to get Ryan to throw the president under the bus, asking him if "Trump fatigue" played a role in his decision to not run for reelection.

The Wisconsin Republican cast the decision to end his 20-year career as a personal one, saying he did not want his children growing up with a "weekend dad".

The Panthers racked up 10 hits on the night, including a Mackenzie Kummer home run hit to deep centerfield in the second inning. Colfax 16, Liberty 1 (5) (game 2): Abbie Miller homered and singled and the Bulldogs downed the Lancers in the second game.

Speaker of the House of Representatives Paul Ryan will not seek re-election in the fall, potentially dealing a massive blow to Republicans fearful of losing control of the House. With Ryan gone, there's little sign Congress will take up the subject after the elections either. I really want to spend time doing the things that I've just discussed doing.

Between the obstinance of the knuckle-draggers in the so-called Freedom Caucus and the unpredictable, freakish world of President Trump, it is easy to confuse Ryan as part of the problem.

"When you called President Trump, what'd he say?" At issue is a resurgent move by conservative Republicans to rescind, or cut about $60 billion in non-defense domestic spending increases that were key to winning Democratic votes.

Bryce had raised a staggering amount of money for a House challenger, thanks in part to his national profile garnered from a viral introduction video and the fact that he is taking one of the most powerful Republicans. Ryan may have had photogenic biceps but it turns out he had no backbone and was easily pushed around by giant cheese puff Trump. "We are very proud of him here in Janesville for doing that", Halabi said.
