Paul Ryan Won’t Rule Out GOP Nomination

House Speaker Paul Ryan hasn’t entirely ruled out accepting a Republican presidential nomination should the party remain deadlocked at the July convention. “You know, I haven’t given any thought to this stuff,” Ryan told CNBC Tuesday night. “People say, ‘What about the contested convention?’ I say, well, there are a lot of people running for president. We’ll see. Who knows?” Though Ryan, who will chair the Republican National Convention, said he made the decision not to run, he didn’t categorically rule it out. “I don’t see that happening,” he added. “I’m not thinking about it. I’m happy where I am, so no.”
 Donald Trump’s victories in Florida, North Carolina, and Illinois knocked out Sen. Marco Rubio while Gov. John Kasich’s win in his home state of Ohio makes it a three-way race with Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz.
