Ryan to visit ECU on Monday

From staff reportsSeptember 1, 2012 

Vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan will campaign in Greenville just as the Democratic National Convention gets under way in Charlotte.

Ryan will appear at a rally at East Carolina University on Monday, the campaign announced Saturday. The event will be in the Student Recreation Center, where doors will open at 11 a.m. for a program scheduled to begin at 1:20 p.m.

Ryan was expected to join running mate Mitt Romney on Saturday in Jacksonville, Fla. Both are making a slew of appearances around the country, together and separately, following the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla.

Ryan’s appearance in North Carolina at the same time as the Democratic convention isn’t all that surprising. Vice President Joe Biden had planned to spend two days campaigning in Florida during the GOP convention, but Hurricane Isaac forced him to cancel.
