Paul Ryan to conduct town hall at YSU

By Ashley Luthern



U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, Republican vice-presidential candidate, will visit the Mahoning Valley for a town hall less than 48 hours after debating Vice President Joe Biden.

Ryan will lead the town hall Saturday at Kilcawley Center at Youngstown State University, said Mark Munroe, Mahoning County Republican Party chairman.

Doors open at 7:45 a.m., and the event is expected to start about 9:45. Tickets are required and available beginning at 9 a.m. today, Munroe said.

Tickets can be picked up in person at the Mahoning County Republican Party headquarters, 621 Boardman-Canfield Road, Boardman, and the GOP Victory Center in the Eastwood Mall, Niles, or reserved online at http://RyanTownHall.eventbrite.com.

Munroe said he did not know exactly how many tickets are available and urged those interested to reserve tickets early.

“It’s pretty remarkable that he’ll be arriving here just after the debate,” Munroe said.

Ryan and Biden will face off at 9 tonight during a debate at Centre College in Danville, Ky.

Ryan’s visit also comes in the same week that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a Mitt Romney presidential surrogate, campaigned for the GOP ticket at Lordstown Village Park.

“We know it’s all about Ohio. Certainly what happens in the Mahoning Valley can affect what happens in Ohio and what happens in Ohio can affect what happens in the nation,” Munroe said.

Ryan visited the Valley in August when he campaigned at the Hot Dog Shoppe in Warren. Last month during an exclusive Vindicator interview, Ryan criticized President Barack Obama on the federal bailout of the American auto industry and the president’s energy policy, which Ryan claimed “is hostile to coal, to natural gas, to oil, to the Keystone Pipeline.”

Also in the interview, Ryan said he accepted the Republican vice presidential nomination because of “the lack of leadership. We had to turn this country around and get jobs created.”

Your right, some are afraid of the truth. Especially when they are caught lying over and over. Now I see their camp is saying that they aren't getting caught lying that its the press. These two will say anything, Karl Rove must be proud. Lie, lie, when caught deny.

Be sure to ask him his real marathon time, just a microcosm of the rest of the lies he tells...Cheating our your marathon time is equivalent to stealing horses, you just don't do it!

This will be an authentic town hall all right. Haha. The guest list is going to be scrubbed to the hilt. The questions predetermined. Maybe boy wonder will have to walk by some protesters on the way in, but then again YSU won't be in session. Shame the university is giving this slime a stage.
