The Wisconsin newspaper Gazette Xtra has called on House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., to remain in office in the wake of a report that he was considering retiring.

"Ryan exhibits a kind of humanity and decency too often missing in politics today," the editors wrote. "Congress would lose a great deal — namely integrity — if Ryan were to leave. Paul, please don't go."

The paper said Ryan has succeeded "amid the finger-pointing and scheming" where Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has not and "if Congress appears to be sputtering, it's largely McConnell's and the Senate's fault," the newspaper said. 

The paper praised Ryan for avoiding public battles with President Donald Trump.

"Ryan has fortunately avoided getting into a tweet war with Trump, which might explain why Ryan has been spared from Trump's infamous 140-character assaults," the paper said.

"Nevertheless, working with Trump must be exhausting… it's not fair to blame Ryan for the antics of a president with little self-control."

"He's an example of how a leader should behave," the piece said.

Politico reported Ryan could be considering leaving Congress in 2018. However, the House speaker has dismissed those claims.
