WASHINGTON, D.C. – Reacting to Speaker Ryan’s announcement he would retire, Rep. Brat released the following statement:

“Today, Speaker Ryan announced that he will not be seeking reelection, and he was very clear that creating time to spend with his family was priority in his decision-making process. We all remember that he did not seek the speaker job – he knew that leadership roles are simply exhausting.

“We thank Paul for his service to our country and acknowledge his leadership in passing a historic tax cuts and reform package. This was his goal since he was Chairman of Ways and Means, and he achieved it through the speaker role.”
