Count Me Out

Let me be clear.  I do not want, nor will I accept, the nomination for our party.  Let me speak directly to the delegates on this.  If no candidate has a majority on the first ballot, I believe that you only choose from a person who has actually participated in the primaries.  Count me out.  I simply believe that if you want to be the nominee for our party, to be the president, you should actually run for it.  I chose not to do this.  Therefore, I should not be considered.  Period.  End of Story.

-- House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), at a news conference, 12 April 2016
