Speaker Paul Ryan is a truly good man, and while he will not be seeking re-election, he will leave a legacy of achievement that nobody can question. We are with you Paul!

…and thus we learn that the Zombie-eyed Granny-starver is not running for re-election.
While he’s just one man, Ryan stepping down is also a psychological blow: the GOP donors will deduce that the Blue Wave is real. Expect all resources to go to The Senate to shore up their hold there.
As for ZEGS, well, who cares? He remains the emptiest suit in Congress and at age 48, he’s got a few more plays left in him. I’d expect to see him in a future Goat Rodeo.
We’ve still got Paul Ryan to kick around, in other words.
