Paul Ryan: 'We Need More Minorities, More Women in Our Party'

Some political analysts see the departure of House Speaker Paul Ryan as problematic for the Republicans. After 20 years in Congress, a failed vice-presidential bid on Mitt Romney's 2012 presidential ticket and two and half years as Speaker of the House, Ryan has little more to show than failed policies and internal dissent within the RNC. "After almost twenty 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 claimed he has made a decision to not to seek reelection strictly so he could spend time with family, though many speculate that he stepped down to avoid the midterm election, where the Democrats have a very good chance of taking the House of Representatives from the Republicans.

Control of the House was already at risk in a tough midterm election. "What I realized is if I serve for one more term my kids will only have known me as a weekend dad". "I can't let that happen". Ryan's leaving because, with a belligerent president unable to effectively rule and under investigation for collusion, dissension within the Republican party between moderates and hardliners and dwindling prospects in the upcoming midterm elections, the future is looking pretty damn bleak for a party that, just two years ago, was trumpeting the start of a new, Trumpian era in the United States.

As chairman of the Ways and Means committee and a self-professed budget wonk, Ryan was reluctant to take on the position, something which Buck insinuated in the announcement, and he reiterated at his press conference. "It's a big job with a lot riding on you ... but you also know this is not a job that does not last forever. We all know that I did not seek this job, I took it reluctantly but I have given this job everything that I have". "But I have given this job everything that I have", he said. Pelosi is seeking to take back the Speakership in November, and many Democrats celebrated Ryan's retirement hoping he is just the first Republican casualty of the so-called "blue wave" to come.

Mr. Trump needs in place Republicans who can push his agenda.

Florida Congressman Dennis Ross announced Wednesday morning that he too would not seek reelection, highlighting the DCCC's point.

Mr Trump's low approval ratings and controversial 14 months in office have heartened Democrats about their chances of recapturing the House majority they lost to the Republicans at the end of 2010.

"I really don't think a person's race for Congress is going to hinge on whether Paul Ryan's speaker or not", he said.
