Paul RyanThe 247 member Republican conference voted on Wednesday to elect Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) as the next speaker of the house. Rep. Ryan garnered 200 votes, while Rep. Daniel Webster (R-FL) picked up 43. Rep. Ryan will become the youngest speaker since 1869. He is 45 years old.

After repeatedly saying he didn’t want the job, Rep. Ryan finally relented after saying he wanted to unify the House Republicans.
