Sources: Ryan to Abandon Senate Bid

The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, say a formal announcement is expected within hours.

Ryan conducted an overnight poll to gauge his support in the wake of the allegations made by his ex-wife in divorce records unsealed earlier this week.

Illinois GOP leaders would select another candidate in the event of a withdrawal. Ryan's replacement would become an instant underdog in a campaign against Democratic State Senator Barack Obama.
