|1. Paul Ryan says he would step down as RNC chair if Trump asked|
|House Speaker Paul Ryan’s office said Monday that he would step aside as chairman of July’s Republican convention if Donald Trump, the party’s presumptive presidential nominee, asked him to do so. Trump on Sunday declined to rule out trying to replace Ryan in the post after the 2012 vice presidential nominee said he was not ready to endorse Trump. On Monday, Trump softened, disavowing ally Sarah Palin’s call for supporting a primary challenge against Ryan. Also, Trump tapped New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to lead his transition team.
