The Associated Press learned of the endorsement ahead of the formal announcement.
Wolf, a distant cousin of President Barack Obama, is a physician and tea party-backed candidate who has been outspoken in his opposition to the health care law.
Wolf will be "one of the U.S. Senate's loudest voices against Obamacare," said Ryun, who served in the House from 1996 to 2007.

Reverse Obamacare reverse the insurance coverage mandate should the message of all outsider candidates in the GOP to the GOPe amenders.
