Paul Ryan announced that he will accept the office of Speaker, but only if several conditions are met.
- All factions among House Republicans must support him
- Changes in the House Rules. made as a team – some which would limit the ability of one faction to topple him as they did Boehner.
- Fewer fundraising demands to still allow him to have work,life and family balance.
It is unclear if the Freedom Caucus in particular is willing to go along with Ryan’s demands. Representative Daniel Webster (R-IL) has previously stated that he will run regardless of Ryan’s bid. The Freedom Caucus remains committed, at this time, to Webster.
