House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) will be in upstate New York on Monday to raise money for the GOP's special-election nominee.

Boehner is set to deliver remarks at a noon event in Depew, which will raise money for Republican Jane Corwin. The Speaker is the latest member of the GOP leadership to campaign for Corwin. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (Va.) appeared for Corwin in Rochester last Thursday. And Rep. Pete Sessions (Texas), chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, was in the 26th district to fundraise for her at the end of April.

Meanwhile, 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.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), a former upstate congresswoman, sent a fundraising pitch on Hochul's behalf and teamed with the pro-abortion-rights group EMILY's List to urge activists to lend their support. But she has yet to appear with Hochul at an event in the district.
