Denver (CNN) - He's been on the GOP ticket just three days and already Paul Ryan is helping raise money for the Republican party and his presidential running mate Mitt Romney.
The vice presidential candidate will attend two private fundraisers held at homes in the Denver area Monday evening, according to a Romney aide.

Ryan will also make a campaign stop before leaving the swing state. He'll hold a public event at a high school in nearby Lakewood.
The aide said 170 tickets were given to people who donated $2,500, $10,000 or $25,000 for the first private fundraiser. More than 75 people were expected to attend the second one.
The money will go to the Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee between Romney's campaign and the Republican National Committee.
Romney has led an impressive effort filling his campaign coffers, breaking records and outraising President Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee three months in a row. Romney helped raise more than $100 million in June and July alone.
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus attended the Iowa State Fair with Ryan and then accompanied him on the chartered flight from Des Moines to Denver to attend the fundraisers. The Wisconsin native also joined Ryan for his homecoming rally with Romney in their home state Sunday evening.

Ryan will get donations from the uber-rich since they don't need Social Security or Medicare. Anybody who thinks they might need these programs when they retire should send their money to President Obama's campaign – because Romney and Ryan will kill both.
I am sure the Koch Bros will gladly give to another one of their lapdogs
At least he's doing something other than sitting in COngress and making sure he and everyone else are doing nothing. Pretry sure 5, 6 and 7 figure donations are fairly good motivators to do something...something...as in, AS YOU'RE TOLD.
