GOP VP presidential candidate Paul Ryan to visit Pennsylvania

Written by The Associated Press | Aug 20, 2012 4:36 PM

(Harrisburg) -- Paul Ryan will make his first campaign appearances in Pennsylvania 10 days and nine states after former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney picked him to be his running mate on the Republican presidential ticket.

A key Pennsylvania supporter of the Romney-Ryan campaign says not to read anything into Ryan's relatively late arrival in the state.

Allegheny County's Republican Party chairman, Jim Roddey, say Pennsylvania will be harder for the Romney-Ryan campaign to win than other swing states.

But he says the candidates plan more trips to Pennsylvania and that the Romney-Ryan campaign will air its first TV commercial in Pennsylvania after next week's GOP convention in Florida.

Tomorrow, Ryan will appear at rallies in suburban Pittsburgh (at 11:00 a.m. at Beaver Steel Services in Carnegie) and in West Chester in southeastern Pennsylvania before heading to a fundraiser in Philadelphia.
