There is a long list of Republicans who have already announced their own retirement, but Ryan's is the most shocking of all.
"It's still a Republican-leaning district".
"This is going to be a challenging year", Pennsylvania Rep. Charlie Dent said.
It proved to be good enough, however, in the state's recent Supreme Court race. Among the energized half who voted in the 2014 midterm election the margin was even more lopsided, with 65 percent choosing Trump and just 10 percent expressing confidence in the party's congressional leaders. For most Republicans nowadays, moderation in supporting Trump is no virtue. "So, you can see there's an energized part of the Democratic Party now". "We are with you Paul!" tweeted the president on Wednesday.
Replacing him as the face of Medicare reform will be hard, he said.
Ryan said that their cheery expressions were because they were celebrating all of their accomplishments, but King cut in to point out that the photograph was rather homogenous.
A resident of Janesville, Wis., Ryan was first elected to the House in 1998.
But he also never faced a challenger as well-funded and organized as Bryce.
With the 2016 election of rampantly conservative President Donald Trump, Ryan had all of the necessary tools at his disposal - a Republican majority in the House and the Senate, a Republican president jumping at the bit to overhaul fundamental, liberal institutions in the federal system, and a conservative-leaning Supreme Court to back any legislation that could pose legal problems.
Ryan's announcement comes as Republicans are bracing for a potential blue wave of voter enthusiasm for Democrats, who need to flip at least 24 GOP-held seats in November to regain the majority.
The Democratic opposition should try to take advantage of this opportunity to regain the majority in the House, which experts consider more and more likely. But as House Majority Leader during Ryan's tenure, McCarthy has developed a close working relationship with Donald Trump, who calls him "my Kevin" and reportedly considered him to replace the late Reince Priebus as White House chief of staff.
On other fronts, the speaker of the House was not so successful, particularly with respect to his interest in restoring Medicare and Social Security to a strong financial footing and bringing this country's out-of-control deficit spending under control.
Bryce, endorsed by liberals like Vermont Sen.
Myers said Ryan's decision to drop out shouldn't change the approach for her or Bryce, saying any replacement for Ryan "will just be Ryan-lite". Trumpism is ascendant in Washington, but is a permanent Republican shift away from conservative orthodoxy and the establishment underway - or is the party makeover temporary?
But some of the best-known names are steering clear.
The White House declined to weigh in Friday on whom the president preferred for speaker.
The Trump factor often made running the House impossible. "It's going to be a referendum on the president of the United States and his conduct in office". David Craig. Longtime Ryan friend Bryan Steil, an attorney and University of Wisconsin Board of Regents member, could throw his hat into the ring. "If you look at positions that Republicans as a whole have taken in the Trump era, positions they held as recently as two years ago no longer hold the same popularity".
Republicans are certain to exploit some baggage that Bryce carries. He had almost $2.3 million in the bank at the end of the first quarter.
