Is this the official beginning of the party split we’ve all been told is coming? Who knows.
But it seems like Paul Ryan is willing to do his part, if it means easing tensions. Paul is set to chair the Republican convention in July, but now says that plan may not be set in stone.

That doesn’t mean he’s gunning for a third-party candidate, though.
.@SpeakerRyan tells me he's steadfastly opposed to a third party candidate, even if it's Mitt Romney.

With or without Speaker Ryan, this GOP convention is shaping up to be one of the most dramatic in recent memory.
I'm excited for Omarosa to chair the Republican National Convention in lieu of Paul Ryan.

Paul Ryan's response to Trump's convention threat is basically: "Whatever, man."

This seems like a great way to get out of being convention chair https://t.co/14upNzPVVF
