Paul Ryan, the Republican nominee for Vice President, will campaign in Minnesota on Saturday, Oct. 13. A fundraising invitation obtained by MPR News says Ryan is headlining an event at Solera, a downtown Minneapolis restaurant.
Guests are being asked to give at least $1,000 to attend the reception. Donors contributing $2,500 can take a photo with the Wisconsin congressman. Couples who give $25,000 can attend a private dinner with Ryan.
The campaign hasn’t said whether Ryan will hold any public events while he’s in Minnesota. This will be Ryan’s first visit to Minnesota since Republican nominee Mitt Romney named him as his running mate.
Romney attended a private fundraiser in Minnetonka Beach in August but held no public events.
Vice President Joe Biden last campaigned in Minneapolis and Rochester in August. President Obama visited the state in June.
A Republican candidate for president has not won Minnesota since 1972.
