INDIANAPOLIS -- Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan will keynote the 2011 Indiana Republican Party Fall Dinner on October 21 -- becoming the latest GOP heavyweight to travel to Indiana.
"Hoosier Republicans are laser focused on the issue of America's mounting deficits and debt, and as Chairman of the House Budget Committee, Congressman Paul Ryan is leading the charge to cut spending, curb the growth of government and get our entitlement programs on a sustainable path to prosperity," said Indiana Republican Party Chairman Eric Holcomb.
"His message and vision for economic growth and job creation will be well received in Indiana."
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels will attend the dinner, which will be held in Carmel.
Daniels in recent weeks has been very complimentary of Ryan while stopping short of urging him to run for president.
The Indiana Republican Party has also recently hosted Herman Cain and former Utah governor Jon Huntsman as part of its series of presidential candidate forums. Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney will visit on Sept. 23 and Texas governor Rick Perry on Oct. 12.
