House Speaker Paul Ryan says he is ruling himself out as a Republican presidential candidate. Ryan held a news conference Tuesday afternoon in Washington, D.C. following weeks of speculation that he was plotting to emerge as the Republican presidential nominee at the party's convention later this year.

"...we have too much work to do in the House to allow this speculation to swirl or to have my motivations questioned." 

Ryan said he has no plans to run for president and would refuse the nomination if it was offered to him.
