Speaker Paul Ryan’s recent comment that he’s not yet ready to support Donald Trump as the presumptive nominee was reassuring for some Republicans, infuriating for others.

That doesn’t mean he’s gunning for a third-party candidate, though.

 

 

With or without Speaker Ryan, this GOP convention is shaping up to be one of the most dramatic in recent memory.
