Rep. Meeks Statement on Speaker Ryan’s Decision Not To Seek Reelection
Rep. Meeks Statement on Speaker Ryan’s Planned Retirement
Washington, D.C.—Congressman Meeks released the following statement regarding Speaker Paul Ryan’s announcement that he will not seek reelection:
“Paul Ryan has been a committed, hard-working Representative for the people of Wisconsin’s First District for nearly twenty years. Though we have been on opposing sides of most issues throughout our time serving together, we were able to find common ground on others. Yet, even in times of disagreement, Paul held fast to his principles without being disagreeable.
“I hope that in his remaining months as Speaker, Paul Ryan will return the House to regular order and restore the bipartisanship the American people deserve. I wish Paul, Janna, and their children nothing but the best as they prepare for their next chapter.”
