Paul Ryan: I Will Follow The Rules “By The Book”

Paul Ryan said Wednesday he will follow the lead of the official Rules Committee at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland this summer.

Tom Cole, (R-OK), who suggested Ryan could receive the nomination through a contested convention a few weeks ago, said yesterday’s speech made it clear that Ryan doesn’t want the nomination.

Then again, “a lot of this depends on what happens at the convention,” he said. “The Rules Committee can do whatever it wants. In an election year of “unlikely twists and turns,” who knows what could happen?
