MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan was making a quick dash for cash during his first Minnesota visit since joining Mitt Romney's ticket.
A Saturday night fundraiser in Minneapolis was Ryan's lone stop in the North Star state. He planned to head in from Ohio and was scheduled to head home to Wisconsin immediately after the event.
Donors were asked to pay between $1,000 and $25,000 for varying levels of access to Ryan, a congressman selected by Romney in August.
On Sunday, Ryan will appear at the Harley Davidson Museum for a fundraiser for U.S. Senate candidate Tommy Thompson.  On Monday, Ryan will speak at a town hall meeting at Carroll University in Waukesha.
