Paul Ryan will not stand as a presidential candidate

As the GOP Convention is approaching, there are serious debates about who will be the best candidate. As Republicans wait for the convention to take place, something interesting is actually going on.  Weeks ago, it was thought that Trump could bring enough delegates to win the nomination. But now things have become more open since Cruz has come very close to Trump.  It appears that the Presidential candidate will be chosen between these two in a rather brokered convention. 

In this case scenario, there is a possibility that the attendees at the convention cannot come to an agreement and they will decide to coalesce around someone else. Why would delegates decide to come up with a third person to run as their presidential candidate? Simply put, Trump is a candidate Republicans don´t trust (they don´t think he stands a chance against Clinton) and the only value in Cruz is that he can win against Trump.

Paul Ryan had seemed to be the candidate to run for the presidency in the event that the tight election was not able to find a fit. He seemed like the right fit given his neutral position regarding Trump and Cruz. Ryan, the current Speaker of the House, has stated that he will not be accepting the candidacy.

“I do not want, nor will I accept, the nomination,” he emphatically said, and added: “I am not going to be the party’s nominee for president.” In this way, he rules himself out of being the Republican presidential candidate in the event the convention in July turns chaotic. He has said the one elected to run for president should be the ones that have invested in it.

In an interview with a Wisconsin radio show on Tuesday morning, Ryan said, “I am not going to be the nominee. I don’t want to be the nominee. If I wanted to be the nominee for president, I would have run for president.”
