VP candidate Ryan to visit Alabama for fundraiser



HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan is coming to Alabama for a private fundraiser.

Ryan is scheduled to be in Huntsville for the event on Friday morning.

The event is closed to the public, and an announcement from the Alabama GOP says it costs thousands of dollars just to get in.

People who give $1,000 can attend a general reception, and anyone donating $5,000 to the Republican campaign gets a photo made with Ryan.

Anyone wanting to participate in a roundtable discussion must donate $25,000 or raise $50,000 for the campaign.
