It's official –– Congressman Paul Ryan has announced he will run for speaker of the House, ending weeks of "will he or won't he" media coverage.
Ryan was very publicly against running from the start. But in a letter to House colleagues, Ryan said: "I never thought I'd be speaker. But I pledged to you that if I could be a unifying figure, then I would serve—I would go all in."
Ryan outlined his conditions for running during a press conference Tuesday.
