SPRINGFIELD — Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan is scheduled to attend a private fundraiser in Springfield.
Ryan is expected to attend the fundraiser Thursday evening. He is not scheduled to make any public appearances during his visit.
The Springfield News-Leader reported that tickets for the event range from $1,000 per person or $2,000 for a couple to $10,000 to $25,000.
It is Ryan's first trip to Springfield since Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney chose him as his running mate.
Missourians opposed to Ryan's budget plans are planning to protest at the fundraiser.
