JANESVILLE, Wis. -- Paul Ryan is returning to his old high school in Janesville for a send-off rally ahead of the Republican National Convention.
Ryan was named Mitt Romney's running mate two weeks ago. Republicans delegates will make the Romney-Ryan ticket official at the convention, but first Ryan supporters will see the congressman off at a Wisconsin rally.
The event will be held Monday at Joseph A. Craig High School in Janesville. That's the same high school that former Democratic U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold attended.
After the rally, Ryan heads to Tampa. The convention there has already been shortened from four days to three because of weather problems caused by Tropical Storm Isaac.
Convention officials plan to convene briefly on Monday, then recess until Tuesday when the storm is expected to have passed.
