Nevada lawmaker: 'Rumor mill' says Ryan headed for exit

"I don't know, so that is the rumor mill from last week", he added. Ryan answered a range of questions related to the ominbus spending bill the House of Representatives is now considering.

Some Wisconsin students are taking the momentum of weekend demonstrations against gun violence on the road - straight to House Speaker Paul Ryan's district.

Amodei said he was repeating a rumor that's around Capitol Hill. He went even further by stating, with nothing more than gossip from his colleagues, that Ryan would resign within 60 days and that his successor had already been chosen. Now, maybe they have talked to all of the members but me.

Republicans would be stunned if there were an outright resignation, in the middle of the term, without any political scandal, and many would suspect they had little chance to win the majority in November.

'You know John Boehner said the same thing: "Hey, when I checked all of the boxes I thought were important and I'm moving on to whatever else,"' the Nevada Republican said. Ryan has said he and his wife will decide in the spring about whether he will run for reelection.

Ryan also succeeded past year in shepherding tax reform through Congress, providing him with a long-sought goal.

Earlier today, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey suspended Uber's ability to test and operate self-driving cars on public roads in the state.


Amodei said he believes Ryan wants to,"Play on the national stage in some capacity or another".

After throwing open the idea that Ryan would resign, Amodei then acknowledged no one is openly campaigning to succeed him or pursuing other seats in leadership that could become vacant if McCarthy or Scalise moved up.

Ryan was recently critical of Trump's planned tariffs for steel and aluminum.

A Republican member of Congress said House Speaker Paul Ryan will resign soon and be replaced by House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, in an interview on Monday with a local Nevada talk show.

Comments by a Nevada congressman on Monday touched off the latest round of speculation that Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan might hang up his gavel and retire, with Louisiana's Steve Scalise a possible successor.
