WASHINGTON (WEEK) -- -

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) will not run for re-election.

POLITICO reports Ryan will tell his House Republican colleagues he will not seek another term in Congress. However, Ryan does not intend to leave Capitol Hill before the end of his current term.

Rumors about Ryan's impending departure have swirled for months, with Reps. Kevin McCarthy and Steve Scalise among the strongest contenders to replace him.
