Ryan: ‘I do not want nor will I accept’ nomination

By Around the Web

(THE HILL) — Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Tuesday definitively ruled out running for president, saying the Republican nominee should come from one of the candidates already running.

“Let me be clear: I do not want, nor will I accept the Republican nomination,” Ryan said outside Republican National Committee headquarters, adding: “Count me out.”

Ryan was seeking to tamp down speculation that he could emerge from a contested convention as the GOP’s presidential candidate.
