Congressman Earl L. "Buddy" Carter (R-Ga.) released the following statement after Speaker Paul D. Ryan announced his retirement from the United States House of Representatives at the conclusion of the 115th Congress:

"I thank Speaker Ryan for his tremendous leadership, commitment to conservative principles, and friendship. When Paul became Speaker he set a bold agenda to better the lives of all Americans and he delivered. Under Paul's leadership, the House has delivered historic victories like the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act to allow hardworking American families to keep more of their paychecks, a reduction of burdensome regulations on job creators, critical support for our military, and the list goes on. While great strides have been made, there is still a lot of work to do and we will continue our mission together during the remainder of Paul's time in Congress. I will miss Paul in the House, but his vision, dedication, and service has paved the way for an even brighter future.

“I will always value Paul’s friendship and look forward to continuing it beyond the halls of Congress. I wish nothing but the best for Janna, Paul, and the Ryan family in their next chapter.”
