The campaign event is said to be part of Johnson's bus tour around the state as he is facing a tough reelection race against Russ Feingold, who is currently leading in polls by an average of approximately 5 points.
 
Ryan maintains a closer relationship with the Republican vice presidential nominee than he does with Trump.
 
The two lawmakers have worked together in the House and are considered by many to be longtime friends.
 
However, Ryan has been critical of the Republican nominee throughout the election, at one point stating that he will no longer be defending Trump in light of his lewd remarks about women that were caught on hot microphone in 2005.
 
Pence has also declined to endorse the Speaker for another term, stating that he no longer serves in the House of Representatives.
