The House Republican leadership is going all-out to help state lawmaker Jane Corwin capture the open seat in New York's 26th district.

Texas Rep. Pete Sessions, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, told The Ballot Box he's set to travel to upstate New York at the end of the month for a fundraiser and campaign rally with Corwin. 

House Speaker John Boehner (Ohio) will attend a similar event in May, according to Sessions.

Washington Democrats have so far kept their distance from Kathy Hochul, the party's nominee in the May 24 special election for former Rep. Chris Lee's (R-N.Y.) seat.
