Speaker of the House Paul Ryan has been sending numerous emails to Republican recipients, leading many to speculate that he plans to become the party's nominee at the Republican National Convention.

Some recipients at the Republican committee compared them to campaign fliers, according to the Washington Times.

One email said, "no matter the outcome of this year's crucial presidential election, your Republican House majority will continue to fight for conservative values."

Then the email asks the recipient to take a "Leadership Priority Survey" in order to "help guide our agenda in this crucial election year."

One member of the committee told the Times, "I have probably gotten 10 plus emails from Ryan since last week. Hardly ever did before and I'm on everybody's email list. What do you think is up?"

A report in Politico stated that Paul Ryan is having difficulty advancing his agenda as House speaker. A Republican told Politico that he believes Ryan "underestimated the opposition to getting anything done."

Another Republican told Politico that the GOP "is unwhippable and unleadable," and credited Ryan, calling him "as talented as you can be," but said "even he can't do anything."

The Republican National Committee is set to debate rules that would make it more difficult for a nominee to come into the convention and take the nomination from Donald Trump or Ted Cruz on a third or fourth ballot.

Ryan appeared on CBS' "Late Show," where Ryan and host Stephen Colbert had a joking exchange in which Ryan said, in several different languages, that he would not accept a nomination for president.
