Rep. Richard Neal Says House Speaker Paul Ryan's Departure Is No Surprise

Ryan says he has done what he wanted to do in D.C. and that he is exhausted of being a "weekend" dad to his three teenagers who live with his wife in Janesville, Wisconsin.

Democrats are seeking to regain control of Congress from Mr Trump's fellow Republicans in the mid-term elections. President Trump is attempting to remake the party in his image, an image not in sync with an "establishment" conservative like Ryan - either in demeanor or on key issues such as the Mueller investigation, trade, and immigration. "We have accomplished so much at the state level and I look forward to ensuring Wisconsin continues down that path. Unemployment is at an all-time low, the tax burden is the lowest it has been in decades, and our schools remain strong".

Rep. Charlie Dent, a moderate Republican from Pennsylvania who is also retiring, noted the difficulty of Ryan's position. "When I look at that picture, I have to say, I don't feel very celebratory".

Honored to have Republican Congressional Leadership join me at the @WhiteHouse this evening.

Gay-rights Attorney immolates self in NYC at protest
Buckel apparently left the note in a shopping cart in close proximity to where his remains would be found the following day. Buckel was the lead attorney in in a lawsuit involving Brandon Teena , a transgender man who was murdered in Nebraska.

This narrative runs counter to the numerous departures of White House staff who are leaving to spend less time with Donald Trump's family. Even then, McCarthy must prove himself acceptable to the conservatives who derailed his speakership campaign in 2015, or he could fall short of the votes he needs to win the gavel, paving the way for Scalise, who is perceived as being more ideologically rigorous. The profile boost, which comes with fundraising and organizational help, was an early sign of the party's optimism about toppling Ryan and the GOP majority. "This is going to make every Republican donor believe the House can't be held". Wisconsin House Speaker Robin Vos, who has championed Republican Gov. Scott Walker's agenda, decided not to run.

Democrat Randy Bryce, a colorful ironworker who has cultivated an "IronStache" moniker, had been Ryan's best-known challenger, drawing liberal support from around the country. The Democratic House leader, Nancy Pelosi of California, said she hoped Ryan would work constructively on bipartisan goals before he leaves. Janesville teacher Cathy Myers was also running on the Democratic side. He had almost $2.3 million in the bank at the end of the first quarter.

In the current House, which has 237 Republicans, the Freedom Caucus sways enough votes to keep any candidate from getting a majority vote needed to ascend to House speaker should Ryan step down before his term is up when the new Congress is sworn in in January.

"It's like Eisenhower resigning right before D-Day", Tom Davis, a former Republican congressman from Virginia who once headed the House GOP's campaign committee, told the Associated Press.
