Paul Ryan Announces Mccarthy as Successor

Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Paul Ryan, who is set to retire by the end of 2018, has elected US Representative Kevin McCarthy as his successor, according to reports.

As per an interview of Ryan at NBC, he said that “Kevin is right person”.

He also instilled his belief into McCarthy winning the elections for the post while reiterating that he himself would serve the office until the end of 2018.

McCarthy is seen to be a top contender for the post alongside Republican leader Steve Scalise of Louisiana.

Earlier on Friday White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said: “The president has a great relationship with Kevin McCarthy, but in terms of an announcement about who he wants to see as the next speaker, I don’t have any announcements on that front”.

Paul Ryan on Wednesday announced his retirement at a press meeting where he said “If I am here for one more term my kids will only have ever known me as a weekend dad. I just can’t let that happen. So I will be setting new priorities in my life”, as reported by Capitol Hill.

Later United States President Donald Trump supported Ryan’s decision while saying, “Speaker Paul Ryan is a truly good man, and while he will not be seeking re-election, he will leave a legacy of achievement that nobody can question. We are with you Paul!” in a Twitter post.
