Ryan bowing out, sending ripples of uncertainty through GOP

House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan will not run for re-election this November, raising questions about the Republicans' ability to maintain control of the House during midterm elections.

Moments later, Ryan told reporters that if he were to stay for one more term, his children - now all teens - would only know him as a weekend dad.

Casey notes that numerous Republicans choosing to leave Washington right now are more moderate on the political spectrum.

This narrative runs counter to the numerous departures of White House staff who are leaving to spend less time with Donald Trump's family.

"Honored to have Republican Congressional Leadership join me at the @WhiteHouse this evening", Trump tweeted. 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.

"You were one of the main people that said you wanted to do more for the Republican Party-you wanted to expand the base", King reminded Ryan.

"I go back to my district and people couldn't be more ecstatic about the things we're doing", Florida Rep. Brian Mast said.

The charge, injury to the elderly, includes "intentionally and knowingly causing bodily injury to a person 65 years or older". A source close to the situation confirmed an NFL Network report , which said Worley became combative with police.


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. He has hauled in $54 million so far this election cycle. "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".

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".

Ryan's allies insist the party's top fundraiser and champion of a crisp GOP message remains in full force.

In Wisconsin, Republicans had no obvious successor in waiting. Bernie Sanders and NARAL Pro-Choice America, faces a Democratic primary challenge from Janesville teacher Cathy Myers. He had almost $2.3 million in the bank at the end of the first quarter.

The only declared Republicans so far are white supremacist Paul Nehlen, who was banned from Twitter earlier this year for a series of posts criticized as racist and anti-Semitic, and Nick Polce, an Army veteran who co-owns a security-consulting firm.

"They're middle of the road in temperament, and I think that no matter what happens in November, that's a big brain drain and loss of experience in Congress for the Republican Party", said Dr Matthew Green, a Catholic University professor who has taught on politics in the age of Trump. "He now leaves the Republican party here in Washington - because, really, he's a major leader here in that party - a bit rudderless as it prepares for a tough reelection battle in 2018". Others have suggested that an ideal job for the policy wonk could be running a think tank, noting the leader of the conservative American Enterprise Institute recently announced he would be stepping down.

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.
