Paul Ryan Announces Bid for Speaker of the House
Rep. Paul Ryan announced Thursday that he is officially running for speaker of the House, and he is likely to be elected next week. "I never thought I'd be speaker," Ryan said in a statement. "But I pledged to you that if I could be a unifying figure, then I would serve -- I would go all in. After talking with so many of you, and hearing your words of encouragement, I believe we are ready to move forward as a one, united team. And I am ready and eager to be our speaker."
