— Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan will be in the Triangle on Wednesday, making a campaign stop at 1 p.m. near RDU before attending a private fundraiser.

Ryan will visit SMT Inc., a sheet metal fabrication company at 7300 ACC Boulevard, at 1 p.m. Doors open at 11 a.m. and tickets to the event are free.
