Rep. Barbara Comstock On Speaker Paul Ryan's Retirement

In 2012, Paul Ryan was Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romeny's working mate. To do so, they would have to pick up at least 23 seats in the 435-member House.

Ryan's exit also adds another potential target for Democrats looking to take over the House this year.

According to the Spokane Spokesman-Review, she was endorsed by the Ryan-backed super PAC Congressional Leadership Fund in January in her midterm re-election bid. "But I took it reluctantly and gave it all I had".

"What I realize is, if I am here for one more term, my kids will have only known me as a weekend dad", he told reporters on Wednesday.

"After almost 20 years in the House, the speaker is proud of all that has been accomplished and is ready to devote more of his time to being a husband and a father", Ryan adviser Brendan Buck said in a statement. "I don't think it affects it".

Apparently frustrated with the actions and temperament of President Donald Trump, the recent Federal Bureau of Investigation raid of the president's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, may have made him change his mind.

It's said she suffered a "stinger" injury, which causes a burning sensation, and was immediately taken off the WWE schedule. BRITISH WWE beauty Paige has sensationally revealed she is quitting the sport in a tearful announcement to fans.

Ryan, 48, plans to proceed to serve out his full time interval and retire in January, Brendan Buck, counselor to the speaker, talked about in an announcement to Fox Data. "I just can't let that happen, so I will be setting new priorities in my life, and I will also be leaving incredibly proud of what we have accomplished".

Ryan pointed to his young family as the reason for his retirement.

Those tensions didn't entirely go away within his conference, and then along came Donald Trump.

Worse, he's sending a message to Republican Party actors that he expects to lose their House majority.

Trump said that Ryan was a "truly good man" who will "leave a legacy of achievement that nobody can question".

A mid-term election looms, and there are at least even odds that a Democrat could be speaker next year.

Narine, earlier, had the record of scoring the fastest 50 in IPL off 15 balls which KL Rahul broke against DD earlier on Sunday. Lynn may also be skinny at [3.3] but he's the key wicket and could deliver the profit whether he ruins the match tip or not.

Ryan first entered the House in 1999, and he eventually became the chair of the Budget and Ways and Means committees.

The opposition Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez said Ryans retirement is an indictment of Republican leadership that has failed to provide meaningful results for the American people. Ryan said at the news conference that he viewed such a move as being dishonest with his constituents and his "conscience could not handle going out that way".

"I also want to thank the people of southern Wisconsin for placing their trust in me as their representative for the past 20 years".

In December Mr Ryan achieved his cherished goal of overhauling the United States tax code, and according to Axios, regarded it as the capstone of his legislative career.

Congressman Cedric Richmond, D-New Orleans, said he would ultimately like to see Democrats gain the majority in the House. As Speaker he found himself sandwiched between the GOP hard right and mainstream Republicans along with the controversial and ever-changing president who has turned to using tariffs to spark a trade war that the Speaker opposes and feels is a violation of the free market. Mr Ryan has become the party's most important fundraiser in the House and Republicans have been counting on him to help them collect and spend tens of millions of dollars defending their majority this fall.
