Paul Ryan and the Exodus of Republicans From Congress

Paul Ryan and the Exodus of Republicans From Congress

"What was the surprise was that he was announcing it before the election..."

Below are reactions from some of those representing Berks County in Washington to Wednesday's announcement by U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan that he will not seek re-election.

"But the truth is it's easy for it to take over everything in your life and you can't just let that happen", he added.

Under House Republican rules, when there are more than two candidates for any office and none receives a majority of the votes on the first ballot, the candidate with the lowest number of votes on that, and each succeeding ballot, will be dropped until one candidate receives a majority of the votes.

As House Speaker, Ryan failed to speak out forcefully against Trump's reckless and divisive rhetoric and his chaotic presidency.

Maryland Law only allows drivers to use their phones while driving in order to accept or decline incoming phone calls. Your radio or navigation system can take your attention off the road you if you aren't cautious.

Ryan was scheduled to dine with Trump and other Republican congressional leaders on Wednesday evening at the White House. "I particularly appreciate the Speaker's support for working with us to advance landmark legislation to fight sexual harassment in the workplace and the help that he has always given to recruit more women in the Republican conference". "Democrats can do better", he continued.

Ryan on Sunday again stressed his focus on his family.

Ryan said he has a much more effective relationship with Mr. Trump by having "personal dialogues" with him rather than talking about him in public. "He said Ryan is ready to devote more of his time to being a husband and a father".

Ryan called GOP leaders as well as Trump and Vice President Mike Pence personally on Wednesday morning to tell them the news, according to Politico. "I understand his decision to return to Wisconsin and his family, but I will dearly miss my friend".

"It's an admirable decision", he said.

Woman who drove SUV with family inside over California cliff was drunk
A witness told investigators they saw a maroon SUV, possibly a Honda Pilot, crash into the river north of Leggett around 1:10 p.m. The 31-metre drop killed the women, both 39, and their children Markis Hart , 19; Jeremiah Hart , 14; and Abigail Hart , 14.

McConnell says Ryan's leadership was also vital in securing a big boost in defense spending and in enabling new treatments for rare diseases. "Over the coming months, I will work with my colleagues to encourage other strong leaders to step forward to guide us through these hard times".

She also reminded the current Republican leader in the House that he had once promised to do more to make the GOP more inclusive.

"I think we all believe that Kevin is the right person", the Wisconsin Republican said in an interview that aired Friday. "It's not good to be a weekend dad or a weekend husband".

"It did not surprise me, with all the turmoil that's happening in the White House, that he's made a decision to step down", said Jeff Potter, sho was outside the Hedberg Public Library. "Because they have the authority to do that now", Ryan said. "He is deeper than the Pacific Ocean when it comes to policy". So Paul Ryan had to defend his party on national television.

What we know so far about the strikes on Syria
Russia's ambassador to the United States said Moscow had warned that "such actions will not be left without consequences". The Pentagon claims the overnight strikes "significantly crippled Assad's ability to produce chemical weapons".
