Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, the Republican vice presidential candidate, will campaign on 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 party chairman Jon Stainbrook.

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.
