GREENVILLE — Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan will be in Greenville later this month for a private fundraiser.
Former S.C. GOP chairman Barry Wynn told The Greenville News the breakfast will be at the home of Greenville developer Phil Hughes on Oct. 26.
The event could attract perhaps 100 people, said Wynn, the finance co-chairman for Mitt Romney’s S.C. presidential campaign.
Tickets are $1,000, with special photo opportunities for those donating $5,000. Those who give $25,000 can attend a private reception with Ryan.
Ryan is not scheduled to campaign publicly in South Carolina. Wynn says the money will be spent in “swing” states.
“South Carolina is considered a donor state in the sense that very little campaign money on the presidential side will be spent in South Carolina from either campaign,” said Wynn. “But I think the Republican candidates are confident South Carolina can raise money for the campaign.”
South Carolina is considered firmly in Romney’s camp.
Wynn said Ryan’s visit will be the fifth fundraiser for the Romney campaign in South Carolina.
