MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan will help U.S. Senate hopeful Tommy Thompson raise some more ad money for the final five weeks of the campaign.
The Thompson camp said Tuesday that Ryan will appear with the former governor on October 14th at the Harley-Davidson museum in Milwaukee.
Other details of the visit were not immediately released.
The event should provide a financial boost for the Thompson campaign – which went broke after a hard-fought four-way primary just over a month-and-a-half ago.
Polls show Thompson to be in a tight race with Madison House Democrat Tammy Baldwin for the Senate seat to be given up by retiring Democrat Herb Kohl.
Ryan, the House Budget Chairman from Janesville, will also pay a visit to Milwaukee this Saturday night for a fundraiser for the Romney-Ryan ticket.
