Paul Ryan does not accept Republican nomination

There have been many speculations about Paul Ryan accepting a nomination for president. These were not really born out of air since there were some solid situations that led some to think he might accept. One of those was a very eloquent speech about politics on April that sound very candidate-like. 

Paul Ryan had risen as a possible candidate running a parallel candidacy in case no other nominee obtained a majority vote needed.

Paul Ryan had announced over a year previously that he had no intention of running for president for the G.O.P. After so many speculations, the House of Representative Speaker came forward and made it very clear that he has no intention of running for the Republican Party.

In a Capitol Hill press conference he stated, “I do not want nor will I accept the nomination for our party.”

“So let me speak directly to the delegates on this: if no candidate has a majority on the first ballot, I believe you should only choose a person who actually participated in the primary. Count me out.”

"I simply believe that if you want to be the nominee for our party – to be the president – you should actually run for it. I chose not to do this.  Therefore, I should not be considered. Period. End of story."

Even though he clearly ruled out any kind of nomination for president, Ryan still plays an important role for the Republican Party.  During the convention, he was ruled by RNC as House Representative as the chair of the Republican Party Convention last July.

Earlier in April, during a Wisconsin Radio interview, Ryan said he was surprised how speculations regarding his candidacy had grown despite the fact that he clearly expressed no interest in the nomination. "It is just amazing how these things keep going," he said at the time,”I am going to try again today to put this to bed. The answer is no, and my strong opinion is if it goes to an open convention...my answer is the delegates should pick among the people who actually ran for president this year. I didn't ... I will not be nominated. I will not allow my name to be placed in nomination. And it will not be me. I don't know how I can be clearer than that."
