Ryan endorses Kevin McCarthy as his successor

  • Who Is Rumored To Be Next Speaker?

After the Republican Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-California) was unable to gain enough support to succeed Boehner, Ryan was chosen as a compromise candidate.

"I fully anticipate handing the gavel over to the next Speaker of the House", Ryan said of a predicted GOP victory.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) announced April 11th that he has decided not to seek reelection.

This all started when KGB successor Federal Security Service (FSB) demanded access to Telegram's decryption keys previous year . Third-party VPN/Proxy-might be overloaded, which is likely to result in slow operation during the first hours after the block.

Ryan plans to make his endorsement official in an interview with Chuck Todd on NBC's Meet the Press on Sunday. "This leadership team has done that, and so I really do envision a more seamless transition, versus say the time when I came in". He pulled out of a previous bid for House speaker in 2015 after he publicly suggested that a congressional panel investigating the deadly 2012 attack on USA facilities in Libya aimed to hurt Democrat Hillary Clinton's presidential chances.

It also remains to be seen whether Ryan will stay on as speaker for the rest of the year or step aside sooner to let Republicans pick a new leader before November.

Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), are the clear frontrunners in this contact. Jordan co-founded the House Freedom Caucus and his entry into the race would further scramble the coalitions that McCarthy and Scalise have been building.

Although not included for now, those counties may be added later, depending on the latest forecast information. The National Weather Service said total ice accumulations of one quarter to one half of an inch are possible.

"What's changed is we have gotten a lot done", Ryan said.

White House Spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the President and McCarthy "have a great relationship", but did not say who he wants to fill the role.

The move helps elevate the No. 2 House Republican in a bid to replace Ryan and potentially heads off a messy and protracted leadership battle before the midterm elections. Republicans were left reeling over who will replace him and whether Ryan's lame-duck status will jeopardize the GOP's pitch to voters and donors.

So far, Stanton has three and Judge two. " He's jumping at everything, missing balls by a few feet and not identifying pitches". The 28-year-old has been forced into regular action at the unfamiliar position due to the outfield being decimated by injuries.

Jordan is "a nice guy, but the Freedom Caucus has been the main source of our problems", King said. If more high ranking Republicans retire, the Republicans will have a very hard time holding onto the House.
