Paul Ryan will be in Danville on Saturday

Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan will be in Danville on Saturday morning for a fundraising breakfast.

Tickets to the 8:15 a.m. event at the home of Brent and Dana Jones start at $1,000, with “Club Mitt” members asked to pay $5,000. A $10,000 contribution gets a person or couple into a photo reception, and a person would have to give and raise from $10,000 to $25,000 for entry into a host committee reception.

Brent Jones played tight end for the San Francisco 49ers from 1987 to 1997, winning Super Bowl rings with the team in 1989, 1990 and 1995.

Proceeds from this event will flow through Romney Victory Inc., a joint fundraising committee, to the Romney campaign, the Republican National Committee, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and the National Republican Congressional Committee.

Ryan has another fundraiser scheduled for later Saturday in Fresno.

UPDATE @ 5:24 P.M. FRIDAY: Many, many more details in our story here.

    Jeesh. The Romney campaign and the SuperPacs already have enough money socked away to buy a new car for every swing state voter.

    I thought President Clinton nailed it the other night when he pointed out that the Republican’s have shifted to the far, far right. In the primaries Republicans in Utah and Indiana kicked out Senator Bennett, and Lugar – two experienced, able – and conservative – Republicans in favor of right wing extremists only because they sometimes worked with Democrats. This Ryan fellow is cut from the same mold – not mainstream like a Bob Dole or a Pete Wilson, Ryan just wants to destroy the Democrats anyway he can. This hyper partisanship in DC is ridiculous, the political parties in the US are pretty much a joke, the average voter just wants problems solved, they don’t care about party or ideology. While I vote Democratic I expect the Democrats I vote for to work toward solving problems, this hyper-partisanship is wrecking the country.

    Clinton’s speech was like a skilled attorney’s closing argument, marshaling the useful facts and connecting the dots. Vintage Bubba. The killer word was “arithmetic.”

    He didn’t mention Bain, Romney’s tax returns, abortion, same-sex marriage etc. and praised Eisenhower and both Bushes.

    @ #3 John W.

    Nor, to his credit, did he ask if there were any girls in the audience who would like to perform fellatio on him.

    Judging by the reaction of the crowd, he would have had volunteers if he had asked.
