Gayle King Grills Paul Ryan on Lack of Diversity in GOP

Including Ryan and Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Fla., who also announced his retirement Wednesday, 46 Republicans have retired or said they will not run for reelection, and those ranks are likely to grow further in the coming weeks. "The repeal part is done now and we have to work just as hard now with the replace part".

After he became one of the most powerful people in the nation, however, Speaker Paul Ryan did nothing on immigration except to front for President [Donald] Trump's nativism.

Ryan's intentions were first reported by Axios. "Enough donors from the old Romney-Ryan world will write checks to Ryan to save the majority".

"It injects some more uncertainty to be sure", said the No. 2 Senate Republican, John Cornyn of Texas.

Conservatives may actually desire that the speakership vote to be held following the elections, even to give associates that are new, " a vote, perhaps not outgoing ones.

"It's like Eisenhower resigning right before D-Day", Tom Davis, a former Republican congressman from Virginia who once headed the House GOP's campaign committee, told the Associated Press.

House Majority Leader McCarthy, a California Republican known to be tighter with Trump, is expected to again seek the top leadership post that slipped from his reach in 2015.

Honored to have Republican Congressional Leadership join me at the @WhiteHouse this evening. Scalise has more appeal among the aforementioned Freedom Caucus wingnuts, but he's also seen as a loyal chain-of-command type, and has pledged not to mount a direct challenge to McCarthy.

While his plans are uncertain once he steps down in January, Ryan has long said being speaker would be his last job in elected office. "Some say this president really doesn't want to expand the base". "The central thematic still remains: The American people simply do not want Nancy Pelosi to be the speaker". These procedural shortcuts led to understandable concerns among the public about the rush to pass a bill, not to mention justifiable arguments of hypocrisy over how Republican critics of Obamacare's lack of transparency used an even more secretive process. He had almost $2.3 million in the bank at the end of the first quarter. That makes $4.75 million in total donations.

But he also never faced a challenger as well-funded and organized as Bryce. The House speaker has not given his support behind legislation to protect Mueller.

Who would the Republicans nominate to succeed Trump? In that election, Democrat Conor Lamb managed a major upset in the heart of Trump country.

But support for Trump was not very strong in Michigan's 11th Congressional District in 2016 - the President only won it by four points.

"Now that is interesting because nobody has talked to members (of the U.S. House) on how they are going to vote (on new leadership)", Amodei said. "We are with you Paul!"

Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis.

In 2016, Trump slammed Ryan as a "very weak and ineffective leader".

But the praise did little to remove the shadow Trump casts over the end of Ryan's career now that he has made a decision to forego a campaign for reelection.

Ryan said on Wednesday when he formally announced his intention to retire that it's easy for the speaker role "to take over everything in your life and you can just let that happen, but there other things in life that are fleeting as well". "He consults a small crew of family, friends and staff for career advice, and is always cautious not to telegraph his political maneuvers".

The speaker reflects on Donald Trump and fatherhood in an interview hours after his surprise retirement announcement. Ryan has been frustrated with the seemingly unending tensions in his conference between conservative hard-liners and mainstream Republicans and the unpredictable Trump, whose recent tilt toward imposing tariffs and inviting a trade war is anathema to the free market-oriented speaker.

But a Republican leader built in Trump's own image - a political bomb-thrower, ruled by impulse - is unlikely, Green said.
