Differing Views of Paul Ryan's Departure

Differing Views of Paul Ryan's Departure”

"I'm speculating from at least as far away as you are, and my speculation is this: The White House and Paul Ryan would probably not be a great fit", Amodei said, later adding, "I would be very surprised if there were open arms at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue for 'come on into the administration, Mr. Cheese Guy'".

The 48-year-old father-of-three said he did not want to be known by his children as "only a weekend dad".

Swan and Allen said a senior GOP House member predicted, "He will be gone by the end of July".

Ryan, though, said he had no regrets after having accomplished "a heckuva lot" during his time in a job he never really wanted.

Amid weeks of speculation about Ryan's death, the contest because of his post was being believed a two man race amongst home Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, the No. 2 man in GOP House direction, also Majority Whip Steve Scalise, the No. 3 male.

The speaker had been heading toward this decision since late previous year, said a person familiar with his thinking, but as recently as February he had considered running for another term. National polls now show Trump enjoys dominant approval ratings among Republicans, with 86 percent of party voters now supporting the president in the latest Quinnipiac Poll, a dramatic increase from his position before the 2016 elections.

Scalise is viewed as more conservative than McCarthy.

He believes we may see a shift in leadership with democratic gains in congressional party leadership, maybe enough for democrats to take over the House Majority in the next congress. And 38 House Republicans aren't searching for 2018 Reelection. If weird stuff happens and neither McCarthy nor Scalise can cobble together a sufficiently sizeable coalition of supporters, a prominent hard-line conservative like Meadows could pitch themselves to the caucus as particularly well-equipped to work with President Trump, whose relationship with Ryan could charitably be described as "strained".

Any ambitious House leader could help his or her cause by agreeing to the conservatives' demands, in part a response to the huge deficit expansion created by the spending deal and December's Republican tax overhaul package.

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

A top GOP fundraiser, Eric Tanenblatt, said he expects Ryan to remain a force in a tough cycle.

"The speaker and the chief of staff both talked like they had left office", said one donor who attended the event, speaking anonymously because the proceedings were private. Despite this announcement, Speaker Ryan intends to serve out the remainder of his term as the Speaker of the House. "I understand his decision to return to Wisconsin and his family, but I will dearly miss my friend". Ryan brought in $11 million in the first quarter. Janesville teacher Cathy Myers was also running on the Democratic side.

Property Speaker Paul Ryan claims he'll continue being the most effective Republican in the room until slumping in January, despite calls for a direction transition and also queries from inside his caucus regarding a dragged-out course of action harming the celebration at the November mid-terms.
