Former GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan heads back to New Hampshire in October — this time as he continues to set the stage for a possible 2016 presidential bid, it was reported Friday.

WMUR-TV in Manchester, N.H., noted the Wisconsin congressman last visited New Hampshire during the 2012 campaign. He'll go on the stump in early October for former Rep. Frank Guinta, who is expected to announce soon a bid to reclaim his former House seat, WMUR reported.

During his single term in Congress, Guinta served on the House Budget Committee, where Ryan now serves as chairman.

"The people of New Hampshire were very hospitable to my family last fall, and I'm looking forward to the visit," said Ryan. "I'm proud to support Congressman Guinta, who will work to pay down our debt and help grow the economy."

Ryan has an upcoming trip to Iowa already scheduled for November, when he'll be the  keynote speaker at Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad's annual birthday fundraiser.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, another likely 2016 Republican aspirant, keynoted the same event last year.

Still, Ryan's got some work to do, according to a survey this week by the Democrat-affiliated Public Policy Polling.

Ryan is tied for sixth place in a theoretical 2016 New Hampshire GOP primary field that included former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte, who's not expected to run.

The PPP survey found no early front-runner among Republicans, with Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul at 20 percent; New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie with 19 percent; 14 percent for Bush; 12 percent for Ayotte; 10 percent for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz; Ryan and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio tied at 7 percent; 3 percent for Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal; and Rick Santorum with 2 percent.
