House Republicans on Friday passed a “Paul Ryan Rule,” but it wasn’t actually aimed at Paul Ryan.
In a closed-door meeting, Republicans adopted a new rule that would require committee chairmen to step down if they run for higher office, including president or governor.
Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.), in offering the rule in the private gathering, mentioned Ryan as an example, drawing chuckles from the crowd because the Wisconsin Republican and 2012 GOP vice presidential candidate was in the room.
If Ryan decides to run for president in 2016, Cole said according to sources in the room, then he would have to step down from his post as chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, which he is expected to take in next Congress.
