Despite talk to the contrary, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., said with 100 percent certainty he will seek another term as GOP leader in the House.

"This is the typical chatter you have every two years," Speaker Ryan told WTAQ's "The Jerry Bader Show" in Green Bay, Wis. "They call it 'palace intrigue' in the Hill rags. I am going to seek staying on as speaker.

"There's a lot of unfinished work to do, and I think I can do a lot to help our cause, our party. I've led us to offering a very comprehensive agenda to take to the country, and I want to execute and implement that agenda."

Ryan has been criticized for his lack of loyalty to Donald Trump, canceling a campaign tour with the Republican presidential nominee. It has led to reports the conservative House Freedom Caucus might discuss their backing of a new House speaker

But, Ryan is currently campaigning in Wisconsin with Republican vice president nominee Mike Pence and Wisconsin incumbent Sen. Ron Johnson, stumping for his party against Hillary Clinton and her liberal agenda before Tuesday's Election Day.

"Wisconsin, as we're used to, is a battleground state," Ryan told the radio program. "Republicans, please come home. We've got a real good chance of delivering our 10 electoral votes for Republicans.

"Turnout is everything. And that's why we're saying to Republicans: Come home, turn out and vote."

After weeks of Ryan saying he cannot support Trump amid his dangerous rhetoric this election cycle, he is following his own words of "coming home" to a unified GOP.

"Let that be a case for voting against Hillary Clinton," Ryan said. "Let that be a case for voting for Trump, Pence, Johnson, Congress, everybody.

"She will bring all this baggage in, think of the cloud that will surround her with this ongoing investigation. And think of the way the Clintons play the system. I don't think we want to see that in the White House again."
