There will not be an election for a new Speaker before the end of the term, Ryan said, delaying the selection of a new leader until after the midterm. "I took it reluctantly". But I have given this job everything that I have, and I have no regrets whatsoever for having accepted this responsibility.

Ryan represents Wisconsin's 1st Congressional District, which includes Kenosha County, Racine County and most of Walworth County, as well as portions of Rock County, Waukesha County and Milwaukee County. "That's it right there".

Ryan and his wife have three children. Some of you know my story-my dad died when I was 16, the age my daughter is.

Concluding, Mr Ryan said: "I have to thank my colleagues for giving me this opportunity and this honour".

But the GOP-controlled Congress was only able to pass a signature tax cut legislation.

But Stivers also expressed optimism that Ryan would pitch in with the GOP midterm efforts this year.

Here's a look at how some other politicians reacted to the news. In fact, the deficit has only gone up.

Ryan touted the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act he led past year, which overhauled the nation's tax system, and the rebuilding of the nation's military as two of his proudest achievements. "I'm grateful for the president to get this chance to get the stuff done". Democrats, meanwhile, are facing about half of that number with only 18 of their members not running for re-election to the House.

Her campaign, on Twitter, said, "Paul Ryan gave up on representing his constituents a long time ago".

The Mayweather bout last August was his last professional fight and McGregor and his girlfriend also had a son a year ago . On Thursday, White called the incident "the most disgusting thing that has ever happened in the history of this company".

The 48-year-old Wisconsin Republican only assumed the House speakership in 2015.

McCarthy lodged a bid to succeed former Speaker John Boehner in 2015 but withdrew after conservatives balked.

Those tensions didn't entirely go away within his conference, and then along came Donald Trump.

"That was the highest of that advertising and marketing marketing campaign, by the best way by which, as soon as they chose Ryan", Trump talked about.

"If I am here for one more term, my kids will only have ever known me as a weekend dad", Ryan said. He also touts his "legacy of achievement that nobody can question".

The bombshell was delivered by the speaker's counselor, Brendan Buck, who said Ryan would not seek re-election in November. "Trump is the (leader) of the Republican Party", said Sykes. At 56, Crowley could satisfy the demand for a younger leader, even though the 10-term Democrat is not exactly a fresh face in Congress. They often become lightning rods for political partisanship.

Ryan ran for re-election in Congress and as vice president concurrently in 2012, winning re-election for his seat in Congress but he and Romney lost the White House bid. The primary is August 14.

Ryan cited family as his reason for not seeking re-election after almost 20 years in Congress. Bryce spokesman Lauren Hitt says "Paul Ryan chose to quit today rather than face Randy Bryce and the voters". Ryan also said the possibility of Democrats taking the House did not factor into his decision, and reiterated that he intends to finish the year in the leadership position.

She added, "Despite our differences, I commend his steadfast commitment to our country".
