Speaker Paul Ryan to campaign for Andy Barr in Kentucky
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Andy Barr says House Speaker Paul Ryan will campaign with him in Kentucky.
Barr is running for re-election in Kentucky’s 6th Congressional District. He faces Democrat Amy McGrath, a retired Marine fighter pilot who has raised and spent more money than he has.
Barr spokeswoman Jodi Whitaker confirmed Ryan will campaign with Barr in Kentucky this week. She declined to say when or where the event will take place, promising more details later. In a news release, Barr said he looked forward to introducing Ryan to Kentucky’s signature industries and discussing what he called the “positive impacts” of changes to the tax code.
Earlier this month, President Donald Trump campaigned for Barr at a rally in Richmond, Kentucky. Former Vice President Joe Biden has campaigned for McGrath.
