Local Reaction On Speaker Paul Ryan's Announcement

Whether he will succeed is largely up to those now in power who have the responsibility to rein him in which Ryan appears to be abdicating and in which the other party leaders seem disinterested.

But Ryan ultimately had to wrestle with another unexpected challenge: Trump, a president with little of Ryan's interest in policy detail or ideological purity.

Even with backing from the top, McCarthy's grasp on the top job is uncertain. "It's a very partisan environment and I think that problem has been exacerbated under President Trump". In addition to the historically high number of Republican retirements, numerous other classic signs of a wave election are showing themselves: low approval ratings for the incumbent president, a consistent voter preference for the out-of-power party in polling questions and a growing enthusiasm gap among Democratic and Republican activists.

US House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan has said he will not seek re-election to Congress in November and will relinquish his leadership post at the start of 2019.

One of the owners, Joe Quarena, said Ryan's political success has brought attention to Janesville, particularly when he was a Vice Presidential candidate and Mitt Romney's running mate in 2012. Ryan was once viewed as the future of the party, and he now is a rudder for a party regularly tossed about by Trump's shifting impulses.

"Instead of playing to your anxieties, we can appeal to your aspirations".

Ryan, of Wisconsin, said he will serve until the end of this Congress in January, which will mark 20 years in Congress. "We don't resort to scaring you, we dare to inspire you". "I've been talking to people in the White House about it".

The protests Ryan offered rarely had an impact. Lamb won in part by hammering Ryan and the GOP majority as a threat to Social Security and Medicare.

Ryan said the country also is on the path toward rebuilding the military, another major goal of his. 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.

"This district looks like Randy Bryce", said former Wisconsin Democratic Party Chairman Mike Tate. His departure will encourage colleagues unsure about their prospects to make the same decision.

He posed as fiscal conservative but consistently supported tax cuts that increased the deficit.

At the same time, Ryan has struggled to hold together a fractious GOP caucus, initially failing in his attempt to pass a repeal of President Obama's health care law. There are 10 Ryan family households within eight blocks of my house. Ryan will continue to act as House speaker through the beginning of next year. The talking points also specifically mention fundraising as a "team effort,"that includes Vice President Pence, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, and House Majority Whip Steve Scalise". Only eight members - less than half of those retirements - hail from districts where Trump was more popular than the national average. "There's so much more we can do to help keep this majority".

In a sign of the desire to tamp down intra-party squabbling, Ryan himself endorsed McCarthy in an interview to be broadcast Sunday on NBC News' "Meet the Press", saying, "We all think that Kevin is the right person". At points, they seemed to be commiserating about the difficulty of working in the current political environment. "The speaker thanked the chief of staff for being one of the sane guys in office". I guess they can relate to Mr. Ryan's dilemma.

The leadership vacancy comes at an awkward time for a GOP that could face massive losses in this November's congressional elections, perhaps losing House control.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Friday that Trump "has a great relationship" with McCarthy but declined to say whom he wants as speaker. Several GOP veterans have announced plans to retire in recent months, and another, Rep. Dennis Ross of Florida, followed Ryan on Wednesday.
