Amid weeks of speculation about Ryan's departure, the contest for his post was being considered a two-man race between House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, the No. 2 man in GOP House leadership, and Majority Whip Steve Scalise, the No. 3 man.

As for the seat in Wisconsin, Ryan has represented the 1st District since 1998, and has easily won re-election since. Join us in a conversation about world events, the newsgathering process or whatever aspect of the news universe you find interesting or important. But after appearing on a neo-Nazi podcast and tweeting out anti-Semitic images, the platform condemned the candidate's behavior and scrubbed his byline from their history.

The top contenders at the moment appear to be House majority leader Kevin McCarthy of California, and the party's chief vote counter, Steve Scalise of Louisiana, who almost died in a mass shooting at a charity baseball practice a year ago. McCarthy aides said the remark to other GOP leaders was a bad joke.

Detroit Today host Stephen Henderson speaks with Libby Casey, on-air reporter who covers politics and accountability for the Washington Post, about that inflection point: Ryan's retirement, the prospect for Republicans in November, and the potential opportunity for Democrats. He was elected House speaker in 2015 after former House speaker John Boehner retired. He has hauled in $54 million so far this election cycle. "It's just another issue that's floating out there, and obviously there's going to be some competition for his successor". The profile boost, which comes with fundraising and organizational help, was an early sign of the party's optimism about toppling Ryan and the GOP majority. "Donors who are committed to making sure Republicans hold onto the majority will do whatever they have to do to make that happen", he said.

When he led the Budget Committee, Ryan proposed adding work requirements to the Medicaid program. "I understand his decision to return to Wisconsin and his family, but I will dearly miss my friend". He had almost $2.3 million in the bank at the end of the first quarter. Janesville school board member Cathy Myers is also running in the Democratic primary. Others have suggested that an ideal job for the policy wonk could be running a think tank, noting the leader of the conservative American Enterprise Institute recently announced he would be stepping down.
