House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., are working together on fundraisers to support Republicans in the 2018 midterm elections, The Washington Post reported.

The pair will support the Congressional Leadership Fund and Protect the House, a joint fundraising outfit for McCarthy and Vice President Mike Pence. In May, McCarthy and Ryan will host events in Illinois, Washington, and New York for the Congressional Leadership Fund and in South Florida for Protect the House, The Post reported.

In June, they will appear in Pennsylvania and Texas for both fundraising committees, as well as a Protect the House event in Midland, Texas, in June, The Post reported.

Usually, the top House leaders run separate fundraising schedules, but The Post said McCarthy joining Ryan appears to signal that McCarthy is the heir to House Republican leadership upon Ryan’s retirement.

"Working together, we’re going to keep our majority and I’m looking forward to hitting the road with Kevin in the months ahead to make that happen,” Ryan said in a statement, The Post reported.

Protect the House has already raised $5 million since it launched in February, while the Congressional Leadership Fund is expected to bring in more than $100 million for the 2108 election cycle, the report said.

“We are honored Speaker Ryan and Leader McCarthy will be traveling across the country and appearing together at several events over the next two months to ensure Republicans protect the House majority,” said the Fund’s executive director, Corry Bliss, The Post reported.

Ryan has endorsed McCarthy as the next speaker, USA Today reported earlier in April.
