Ryan Stumps In Cleveland


Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan will make eight stops during a weekend campaign swing through Ohio.

Mitt Romney's campaign says Ryan's stops will include Zanesville, Circleville, and Marion. Ryan stumped in Cleveland yesterday, scoring a standing ovation when he discussed the Affordable Care Act's mandate for contraceptive coverage without co-payments. He calls that an affront to religious organizations. The Obama Administration says religiously-affiliated organizations are exempt, but their insurers must provide coverage at no future cost. The White House says it will work out an accommodation for religious groups that self-insure. Governor Romney has three Ohio appearances scheduled for today while President Obama will return to the state tonight
