ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. Representative Paul Ryan was re-elected speaker of the House of Representatives on Tuesday (January 3) as a Republican-led Congress began a new session. The Wisconsin congressman was elected on a vote of 239-189. Ryan was first elected speaker in October 2015, after his predecessor John Boehner retired following repeated revolts by House conservatives. "Let us not be timid, but rather reach for that brighter horizon and deliver. And so, this old chamber - this old chamber might look the same but in the hush whispers, in the whirl of activity, you can feel the winds of change," said Ryan.
