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

In an April 11 morning news conference, Ryan said the decision was family-related. I am the candidate who will replace him because we need a teacher in Congress who can educate and mobilize voters to reverse the damage Paul Ryan has done to the middle class over his two decades in office.

A self-styled budget expert, Ryan had made the tax cuts Congress delivered a year ago a centerpiece of his small-government agenda and a personal cause, even though they helped skyrocket projected annual deficits toward $1 trillion.

The Wisconsin Republican cast the decision to end his 20-year career as a personal one - he doesn't want his children growing up with a "weekend dad" - but it will create a vacuum at both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue.

Ryan's intentions were first reported on the website Axios. He will likely compete with Majority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana.

In Wisconsin, Republicans had no obvious successor in waiting.

Once home to USA automaker plants in Kenosha and Janesville, the area from south-central Wisconsin to Milwaukee's blue-collar south side was represented by Democrat Les Aspin for more than 20 years before plant closures chipped away at its union-Democrat profile. Steil did not immediately return an email seeking comment. This is the part of Ryan's legacy he'll have great difficulty living down. Janesville teacher Cathy Myers has also been running on the Democratic side. He paid off at least a couple of old debts shortly after announcing his candidacy -one to a former girlfriend who had loaned him almost $2,000 almost two decades ago.

The only declared Republicans so far are white supremacist Paul Nehlen, who was banned from Twitter earlier this year for a series of posts criticized as racist and anti-Semitic, and Nick Polce, an Army veteran who co-owns a security-consulting firm.

"Despite our differences, I commend his steadfast commitment to our country", she said in a statement.

Property Speaker Paul Ryan claims he'll continue being the most effective Republican in the room until slumping in January, despite calls for a direction transition and also queries from inside his caucus regarding a dragged-out course of action harming the celebration at the November mid-terms.
