Paul Ryan Leaves Washington



This Week's Highlights

  • House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) announced his retirement from the House last Thursday, ending months of rumors.


  • The timing of his announcement appears to be an acknowledgement of the changing Republican party and its future success, not only in this year’s midterms, but also the 2020 elections.


  • Ryan is not the only Republican retiring. In fact, he’s the latest in a lengthy line of Republicans exiting Washington after this year’s midterms.


  • It may seem like politics as usual, but it’s important to remember the campaign season and midterm elections will determine policy making for the following two years.
