Congressman Paul Ryan is not running for president in 2016, he announced Monday, and he cited his appointment to a new congressional committee as the primary reason.

“Our work at the House Ways and Means Committee over the next few years will be crucial to moving America forward, and my job as chairman deserves undivided attention,” Ryan said in a statement quoted by WISN 12 News.

There’s been a lot of speculation about whether or not Gov. Scott Walker will run, and we want to know what you think about his chances now that Ryan is out of the race.
