Ryan won't seek leadership role

Rep. Paul Ryan says his first priority is his family, so he won't be a candidate for House minority leader, despite being urged by colleagues to lead Republicans in the next Congress.

Ryan issued this statement late last week:

“I have been honored and humbled by the outpouring of support from my colleagues who have asked me to lead our party in the 111th Congress.

"I share their hunger for reform and will work tirelessly as a policy leader for the Republican Party.

"My first priority in life will always be my wife and my three young children.

"As I reflect upon the strains that this position would place on my young family, I have decided not to enter my name as a candidate for House Minority Leader.”
