House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis­con­sin, is sched­uled to cam­paign with two Repub­li­can con­gres­sional can­di­dates in south­east­ern Penn­syl­va­nia Thurs­day.

U.S. Rep. Ryan Costello, R-6, of West Goshen, will wel­come Paul Ryan to JTech USA in Ch­ester Springs, Ch­ester County, for a me­dia event at 9:45 a.m. to dis­cuss Costello’s work en­act­ing a re­spon­si­ble, five-year trans­porta­tion fund­ing pack­age that pro­vided more than $700 mil­lion for Penn­syl­va­nia roads, bridges and trans­porta­tion projects. They will also dis­cuss Paul Ryan’s lead­er­ship in chart­ing “A Bet­ter Way” for cre­at­ing Amer­i­can jobs and ad­dress­ing some of the coun­try’s big­gest chal­lenges, ac­cord­ing to a news

re­lease from Costello’s cam­paign. The 6th Con­gres­sional District cov­ers parts of Ch­ester, Mont­gomery, Berks and Le­banon coun­ties. Costello is run­ning for re-elec­tion against Demo­crat Mike Par­rish of Wil­lis­town, Ch­ester County.

Paul Ryan will later travel to Rheems, Lan­caster County, for a news con­fer­ence at Wenger

Feeds at 1:45 p.m. with state Sen. Lloyd Smucker, R-13, of Lam­peter, Lan­caster County, who is run­ning to rep­re­sent the 16th Con­gres­sional District, which in­cludes por­tions of Lan­caster, Ch­ester and Berks coun­ties.

Smucker sup­ports Ryan’s “A Bet­ter Way” plan to make the na­tion a bet­ter place for all of ci­ti­zens to­day and in the fu­ture, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease from his cam­paign. Smucker is run­ning for Congress to make cer­tain

that any­body who works hard and plays by the rules can achieve the Amer­i­can Dream. In the state Se­nate, Smucker’s big­gest pri­or­i­ties dur­ing this term have fo­cused on sup­port­ing mea­sures that pro­vide a world-class ed­u­ca­tion to all Penn­syl­va­ni­ans, help­ing to de­velop a more eq­ui­table ed­u­ca­tion fund­ing struc­ture and push­ing for re­forms to re­duce the size of the leg­is­la­ture. He also has ad­vo­cated for a leg­isla­tive gift ban and mea­sures to in­crease open­ness and

trans­parency, ac­cord­ing to the news re­lease. Two other can­di­dates are on the bal­lot for the 16th District seat: Demo­crat Christina Hart­man of the city of Lan­caster, and Lib­er­tar­ian Shawn Pa­trick House of Columbia, Lan­caster County.
