No Ryan 4 Prez

My sympathies to all of you who totally had your hopes up that Paul Ryan would somehow finagle his way to the presidency this election cycle:
Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) will definitively rule himself out as a contender for the GOP presidential nomination in a formal statement before the media Tuesday afternoon.

"He's going to rule himself out and put this to rest once and for all," an aide said.

The Speaker will make his statement at 3:15 p.m. just steps from the Capitol, at the Republican National Committee headquarters.

Ryan has ruled out running for president multiple times this cycle, but speculation about the young Speaker emerging as a consensus candidate at a brokered Republican National Convention hasn't died down.
So he's gonna ruthlessly quash that speculation like he would a piece of pro-choice legislation.

Better luck next time, Ryan-heads!
