Republican vice-presidential nominee Paul Ryan makes his first Orlando-area appearance of the campaign Saturday afternoon with a rally at the University of Central Florida.
Ryan, a Republican congressman from Wisconsin, speaks at a "Victory Town Hall" meeting at 2:30 p.m. at The Venue, UCF's old sports arena. The doors open at 12:30 p.m.
The Romney for President campaign was distributing tickets for free on a first-come, first-served basis, through the campaign website, http://www.mittromney.com.
Days after being named as GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney's pick as a running mate, Ryan appeared at a Central Florida rally in The Villages on August 18, but this will be his first appearance in the metro-Orlando area.
It's the second presidential campaign stop at The Venue this year. First Lady Michelle Obama appeared there July 10, addressing a packed-house of about 2,250 Obama campaign volunteers and supporters.
