U.S. Representative Ryan says not interested in House leadership post

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Republican Representative Paul Ryan said on Wednesday he is not interested in a House of Representatives leadership position after the surprise defeat of Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a party primary contest.

Ryan said Cantor's defeat is "very disappointing" but did not change his view of pursuing an elected House leadership job, saying: "That's just not been my interest". Ryan, who was the Republican party's vice presidential candidate in 2012, spoke to reporters after leaving a speech in Washington.
