“Amy and I give our sincerest thanks to Paul for his distinguished and determined service to Wisconsin and our nation. I am proud to call Paul a friend, and as a former aide, I am honored to have worked for the guiding voice in Congress for reforming our government in the areas that need it the most.

“Paul has not only served with integrity in his representation of the 1st District but has been the steadfast leader of Republican principals and a passionate communicator of conservative ideas. His ability to shape policy and move the conservative agenda forward has been remarkable. His retirement will be a great loss to Congress and the nation.

“We wish him and Janna all the best with gratitude for all they have done for Wisconsin, the nation, and the conservative movement – it is a legacy of accomplishment that will have a lasting impact on our state and nation. We wish the entire Ryan family the very best in whatever lies ahead.”
