Paul Ryan, representing a district in Wisconsin, has served in the House of Representatives, the lower house in the bicameral USA system, since 1999 and ran as Mitt Romney's vice president pick in 2012. "That's why today I'm announcing that they shall be my last one as a member of the House".
"I have given this job everything I have", he said.
Paul Ryan had to be coaxed into taking the speaker's gavel in 2015 and never seemed to relish the job.
Ryan, 48, cited wanting to be around his adolescent children more often. "I took it reluctantly".
Speaker of the HousePaul Ryan (R., Wis.) addressed his decision to not seek re-election to Congress on Wednesday, telling reporters he didn't want to be a "weekend dad" and expressing pride in his tenure.
"The reason I thought he wouldn't make this announcement was because, in effect, when you have the Speaker of the House saying he's not running for re-election, it kind of feels like (he's) running up the white flag.for him to bail right now, it makes it much more hard to raise money, mobilize Congressional campaigns.it's going to feed into the narrative of the 'blue wave.' The narrative becomes self-perpetuating and self-fulfilling".
In December of previous year, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said President Donald Trump had called Ryan and the president made it clear he wouldn't be happy if Ryan quit Congress.
"I think he's really exhausted". Buck said Ryan will serve out his term and retire in January. He said 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". What I realize is if I am here for one more term, my kids will only have ever known me as a weekend dad. The action suggests that the party is crumbling under the considerable weight of Donald Trump.
A former chairman of the House Budget Committee, Ryan - who was first elected to Congress in 1998, at the age of 28 - has spent much of his career focused on fiscal policy. Yet he managed to raise over a million dollars to fight the election.
"Speaker Paul Ryan is a truly good man, and while he will not be seeking re-election, he will leave a legacy of achievement that nobody can question", the President tweeted. Ryan wasn't the only person to announce his retirement on Wednesday: Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Fla., also said he won't run for re-election. That we fashion an agenda, that we run on that agenda, that we win an election, and that we execute that agenda.
All 435 House lawmakers and 34 senators will face the voters this November, in what will amount to a referendum on Republican control of Congress and the White House.
