(THE HILL) Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) dodged a series of questions Thursday morning about Mitt Romney's expected attack on Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump, saying, however, that "everything is fair game" until a nominee is chosen.
"I know Mitt feels strongly about this election and he's going to speak his mind," Ryan said on "Fox and Friends," adding that Romney is a party leader who's "worried about the future of the party."
"I'm gonna keep my powder dry. I am the Speaker of the House, therefore I'm neutral in this race. I'm the chair of the convention," Ryan said in declining to offer his own thoughts on the speech Romney is scheduled to deliver Thursday morning at the University of Utah.
