The Mitt Romney campaign announced late Tuesday morning that Vice President nominee Paul Ryan will fly into Charlottesville Albemarle Airport on Tuesday evening.
The campaign tells CBS19 that after he arrives, Ryan will get into a vehicle and then travel by motorcade to another location. As far as where that location is, the campaign won't say.
CBS19 has learned that he will be in the area to prepare for next week's Vice Presidential Debate.
Ryan is scheduled to appear at a rally with Romney on Thursday in Augusta County. It is not clear if Ryan plans to stay in the area until that rally.
A spokeswoman with Albemarle County police tells CBS19 that their department has very little to do with this visit. That would indicate that there likely won't be road closures Tuesday evening.
As soon as we get more information, we will pass it along.
