WASHINGTON—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) issued the following statement:
“Reince Priebus has left it all out on the field, for our party and our country. Here is a guy from Kenosha, Wisconsin who revitalized the Republican National Committee and became White House chief of staff. He has served the president and the American people capably and passionately. He has achieved so much, and he has done it all with class. I could not be more proud to call Reince a dear friend.
"I congratulate Secretary Kelly on his appointment, and look forward to working with him to advance our agenda."
