The former House speaker will attend an event at Belmont TV in Arlington.

It’s one of 18 so-called “We Did Build This’’ events taking place in 12 states Monday.

Meanwhile, the Romney bus will return to the state — without Romney — this week.

The bus, which serves as a mobile office where activists can make phone calls and assist in get-out-the-vote efforts on behalf of the Republican ticket, will be on a three-day tour of southwest Virginia.

Republican officials — state party chairman Pat Mullins and Del. Will Morefield — will be at Monday’s stops in Norton, Lebanon and Oakwood.
