Ryan Discussed Presidential Run with Boehner

Wednesday, 17 Aug 2011 12:34 PM

Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., has discussed making a run for the presidency with House Speaker John Boehner. However, sources say he is likely to take a pass, Roll Call reported.

A top Wisconsin Republican operative said Ryan is leaning against a run because the grueling demands of a presidential bid would keep him from his wife and young children. “Despite a new round of urging and conversations, nothing has changed,” the Wisconsin operative told Roll Call. “People continue to urge Paul Ryan to run — that group is growing, not shrinking. But I am unaware of anything changing his calculus or plan to do that.”

Ryan has insisted for months that he was not interested in a presidential run, but recent reports that he is discussing the matter with his family while on vacation and comments he has made about the GOP field have renewed speculation.

However, the Wisconsin operative said most of those close to Ryan expect him to opt out, Roll Call reported.
