ROSEMONT, Ill. Vice presidential hopeful Paul Ryan told supporters in President Barack Obamas home state their contributions will help Republicans define the very clear choice for voters in the final weeks before Election Day.
Speaking at a fundraiser in suburban Chicago, Ryan said the president is trying to throw the kitchen sink at GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and muddle and confuse voters. He also accused Obama of distorting Romneys record and said the presidents campaign is outspending the GOP ticket on television advertising in some key states.
Ryan told attendees their support will give us the resources we need to make sure he doesnt get away with it.
Tickets to the event at the Hyatt Regency OHare ranged from $2,500 to $75,800 per person. The campaign said about 260 people attended.
