WARREN - Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan is expected to attend a fundraiser in Trumbull County this week, a source with knowledge of the visit confirmed Tuesday.
The campaign also is working out details for a public event the same day of the fundraiser; however, whether that will happen remains unclear, according to the source.
The fundraiser is expected be held at a business in the Warren area, probably Thursday.
Trumbull County Republican Party chairwoman Kathi Creed could not confirm Ryan's visit, nor could Mitt Romney's Ohio campaign spokesman Christopher Maloney.
Ryan, a U.S. Congressman from Wisconsin, was picked by Romney on Saturday to join him on the ticket. The two made their debut later that day at a naval museum in Norfolk, Va., to begin a campaign trip that included battleground Ohio.
Romney held a townhall-style meeting in March at Taylor-Winfield Technologies in Youngstown, and former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and current Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, both of whom were rumored to be in the vice presidential sweepstakes, stopped at Eastwood Field in Niles in July before a Mahoning Valley Scrappers game to stump for Romney a day before President Barack Obama campaigned in Poland and Boardman.
Vice President Joe Biden campaigned at M-7 Technologies in Youngstown in May.
