It has been reported that House Speaker Paul Ryan has told confidantes he is not seeking re-election and will soon announce his decision.
Ryan said in a January interview with CBS News that re-election was a decision he and his wife were planning to make together in late spring, and in March he denied a rumor that he wouldn't seek re-election.
He is expected to address his decision in a closed-door GOP conference meeting Wednesday morning, the sources said.
Supposedly Ryan called House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy about his retirement before the news broke.
Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican, has been in Congress since 1999 and became House speaker in 2015.
The news of Ryan's retirement was first reported by Axios.
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Whip Steve Scalise have started courting Republicans in case the speaker retires.
