House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan announced he will retire at the end of the year.

Professor at Ohio Northern University Rob Alexander thinks Ryan's retirement will shift control of the House and Senate. Alexander said there was talk of Ryan retiring after the 2018 midterm elections, so he finds it surprising he announced it now. He believes Ryan saw Republicans losing control of the House and now other Republicans could follow suit and retire. Alexander said the Senate is a more idealistic focus for Republicans.

Alexander added it could be interested to see what Ryan does next and thinks a television commentator is a possibility.
