According to NBC affiliate CNYCentral, Paul Ryan will be attending separate, private fundraisers for Tenney and Rep. John Katko today. He will also attend fundraisers for Rep. Elise Stefanik and Rep. John Faso, who represents the 19th Congressional District, which includes Otsego County.

Details on the private fundraisers have not been confirmed, but someone with an invitation told CNYCentral that Ryan will be attending a $1,000-plate dinner for Katko at 5 p.m. in Syracuse.

Ryan has decided not to seek re-election and he will retire from Congress after his term is up in January.
