Washington, D.C. - Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) issued the following statement regarding Speaker Paul Ryan’s announcement that he will not run for re-election. 

I am grateful to have served with Speaker Paul D. Ryan, a proven conservative visionary. Throughout my time in Congress, I can personally attest to his unwavering commitment to conservative values and strength of service to the First District of Wisconsin and every corner of our nation.

It is an honor to know him and I appreciate his commitment to serve out the rest of his term as Speaker of the House of Representatives. He will be missed, as he has made a positive difference for American families.”
