Paul Ryan nominated as speaker in House of Representatives

Republicans in the House of Representatives have nominated Wisconsin Republican Rep. Paul Ryan to become the chamber’s next speaker, hoping he can lead them out of weeks of disarray and point them toward accomplishments they can highlight in next year’s elections. The 45-year-old Ryan was his party’s 2012 vice presidential nominee and is considered a telegenic spokesman for conservative priorities. Ryan won on a secret ballot of the House’s 247 Republicans.
