Ryan is expected to make another Southern Tier stop to help an incumbent.  He’s said to have plans to appear in the 19th district represented by John Faso of Kinderhook as the midterm elections loom only three weeks away.

Faso faces Democrat, attorney Antonio Delgado, Green Party candidate Steven Greenfield and Independent Diane Neal.
