News broke Wednesday morning that Paul Ryan will not be seeking re-election.
Counselor to the speaker Brendan Buck said, “This morning Speaker Ryan shared with his colleagues that this will be his last year as a member of the House.”
“He will serve out his full term, run through the tape, and then retire in January. After nearly 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.” (RELATED: BREAKING NEWS: Paul Ryan Will Not Seek Re-Election)
