Republican VP candidate Paul Ryan to attend Naples fundraiser Thursday

In this April 13, 2011 file photo, Republican vice presidential candidate and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., takes questions in reaction to President Obama's speech on a federal spending plan, during a news conference at the Capitol in Washington. Ryan traveled a perilous route to political stardom. While other lawmakers nervously whistled past trillion-dollar deficits, fearing cutting popular programs, he waded in with a machete and a smile. Ryan wants to slice away at Medicare, Social Security, food stamps and virtually every other government program but the military. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)

NewsMakers: Paul Ryan

He endorses Chauncey Goss.

Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan is expected to be in Florida on Thursday, making a stop in Naples.

Mayor John Sorey, who is the honorary Collier County chairman for Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, said Ryan will be in Naples on Thursday for a private fundraiser. Additional details about Ryan's visit were not immediately available.

The Wisconsin Republican was last in Southwest Florida in July — just weeks before he was selected to be Romney's running mate — stumping for then-congressional candidate Chauncey Goss.
