Republicans Re-Nominate Paul Ryan As Speaker Of The House

Paul Ryan will continue his role as Speaker of the House. House Republicans unanimously nominated Ryan for a second term even though Ryan withdrew his support of Trump before the U.S. presidential election.

Politico reports the vote shows promise of GOP unity under President-Elect Donald Trump.

Ryan still has to win a floor vote in January to retain his post. He will need the support of a majority of the house to win.
