Paul Ryan to campaign in Virginia Friday

Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin campaigns in Glen Allen and Springfield Friday, less than a week after Mitt Romney unveiled him as his running mate in Norfolk.

Ryan will attend a rally at Glen Allen’s Deep Run High School in the morning and another at Springfield’s West Springfield High School in the afternoon.

Romney, President Obama and their high-profile surrogates have made multiple visits to the key swing state, where Obama leads Romney 51 percent to 44 percent among registered voters, according to a new Washington Post poll.

After Romney and Ryan made appearances Saturday, Vice President Joe Biden campaigned this week in Virginia.
