WASHINGTON D.C. (WTAQ) - Wisconsin's Paul Ryan is expected to pay a visit to New Hampshire next month.
Republicans say the 2012 vice presidential nominee from Janesville will try to help former House member Frank Guinta win his old job back. He was defeated a year ago, and he's expected to launch a new campaign in the next few weeks.
Ryan is speculated to be a possible GOP presidential candidate in 2016.
A handful of prospective hopefuls have already visited New Hampshire.
Ryan has not been there since he campaigned for Mitt Romney's unsuccessful White House bid in 2012.
On Thursday, the firm of Public Policy Polling said Ryan has a big lead in Wisconsin over other possible White House candidates.
Ryan leads Governor Scott Walker in the Badger State by almost a 2-to-1 margin.
