Paul Ryan to campaign in rally at Toledo Express Airport on Monday


Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, the Republican vice presidential candidate, will campaign Monday in the Toledo area with a rally at Toledo Express Airport, Republican Party officials said Friday.

Tickets are available at Lucas County Republican Party headquarters, 10 S. Superior St., Toledo, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. today and Sunday, according to county party chairman Jon Stainbrook.

Mr. Stainbrook said tickets may also be obtained by calling the office at 419-482-0506 or by emailing the office at He also said the party has a fresh supply of Romney/Ryan signs to distribute.

He said holding the rally at the airport saves valuable time in Mr. Ryan's busy campaign schedule.

"Every visit he makes puts us closer to winning this thing in November. We'll have him do the rally and get him on to the next place," Mr. Stainbrook said. "They're riding the momentum of the debate."

He referred to the planned stop as a kind of whistlestop visit. It will be Mr. Ryan's first campaign visit to the Toledo area, though he previously visited Lima and other Ohio communities. 

Romney campaign spokesman Chris Maloney said New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will campaign Tuesday in Youngstown.
