Republicans Won’t Nominate Trump Again, Says Paul Ryan
(NewsReady.com) – Former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) left Congress in 2019, halfway into former President Donald Trump’s term. When he left office, there was a lot of speculation about why he quit at the height of his career; many believed he didn’t want to serve under the 45th POTUS. The former congressman is now speaking out about the 2024 presidential race and who he thinks won’t be the nominee.
On Tuesday, October 25, Ryan appeared on Fox Business’ “Varney & Co,” where he discussed the GOP’s shot in the next presidential race. The conservative said he thinks “anybody not named Trump” could win for Republicans. He explained he believed the former president would lose the race because “he is not popular with suburban voters,” and that’s who the party’s candidate needed to win.
Ryan claimed the GOP lost a lot when Trump was in office. “We lost the House, the Senate, and the White House in the span of two years,” the former speaker said. He told Fox Business that he wants “to win,” and in order to do that, he thinks Republicans need a new candidate.
Trump has not even announced whether he is running for president yet, but he is incredibly popular within the party. Polls have shown that if he were to face off against President Joe Biden, he would have a shot at beating the current POTUS.
