House Speaker Paul Ryan will be visiting the Southern Tier today to attend a fundraiser for Rep. Claudia Tenney, the congresswoman confirmed to NEWSChannel 2.
Tenney is seeking re-election to the 22nd Congressional District and she will face Democratic challenger Anthony Brindisi in the Nov. 6 election.
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.

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