Earlier Wednesday, Trump tweeted that Ryan leaves "a legacy of achievement that nobody can question".

Scot Ross, director of the liberal group One Wisconsin Now, said, "When you look up "white privilege" in the dictionary, you see Paul Ryan's photo".

Ryan represents Wisconsin's 1st Congressional District, which includes Kenosha County, Racine County and most of Walworth County, as well as portions of Rock County, Waukesha County and Milwaukee County.

A self-styled funds guru, Ryan had made tax cuts a centerpiece of his legislative agenda - and a non-public set off - which Congress delivered on that late ultimate yr.

Ryan - elected speaker in 2015 - steps down as his "Republican" majority faces a pernicious threat from Democrats in the 2018 midterm election.

Mr. Ryan said he couldn't stomach the time away from his family. Buck said Ryan will serve out his term and retire in January.

On Twitter, President Donald Trump offered praise for Ryan, even though the two have butted heads in the past. Ryan's departure is a massive win for those fighting for universal healthcare, but it's a reminder that we have to keep fighting for what we believe in every single day.

The 48-year-old has held the position of speaker since the retirement of former House Speaker John Boehner in 2015.

Jonathan Swan of the news website Axios reported Wednesday that the Wisconsin Republican had been telling confidants he would not run again.

The number two Republican, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, is a frontrunner for the speaker's job, should the party maintain its majority.

Paul Ryan, representing a district in Wisconsin, has served in the House of Representatives, the lower house in the bicameral USA system, since 1999 and ran as Mitt Romney's vice president pick in 2012.

"Paul Ryan is a person of true integrity who I have had the great fortune to know over the last eight years".

"I'm really surprised actually because the paragraph above me, and the paragraph below my quote - those folks got hundreds more - hundreds", she told CBS News.

A majority of all present members of the House of Representatives - Republicans, Democrats and independents - are needed to claim the speakership.

"With his newfound political freedom, I hope the Speaker uses his remaining time in Congress to break free from the hard-right factions of his caucus that have kept Congress from getting real things done", he said.

He said he wants to spend more time with his children, noting that his daughter was 13 when he became speaker.

McCarthy and Scalise's spokesmen declined to comment on t looming speaker's race Wednesday, and the lawmakers focused their statements Wednesday on Ryan's accomplishments in the post.

"You have to start with Robin Vos as the one who decides whether or not he runs", said Brandon Scholz, a longtime GOP strategist in the state and former Wisconsin Republican Party executive director. Vos did not immediately return telephone or text messages. His campaign has support from the national party, and it said it raised US$4.75 million through the end of March.

Democrats Randy Bryce, a union iron worker, and Janesville school teacher Cathy Myers are already running.
