Republican Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan will appear at a rally this afternoon in Springfield at West Springfield High School after a Thursday night fundraiser and Friday morning rally in Richmond, upping the stakes for adding Virginia's 13 electoral votes, which went Democrat in 2008 for the first time in more than 40 years. Appearing with Representative Ryan for the first time will be Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli. Lt. Governor Bill Bolling, Romney's Virginia campaign chairman both in 2008 and this year, appeared with Ryan on his swing through Virginia last weekend with GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, when Romney made an unusual public endorsement of Bolling for governor in 2013, only to backtrack in a later interview to a more neutral stance between the AG and LG rivals. Doors open at 1:15 and the program begins at 3:15. The address is 6100 Rolling Road, Springfield.
