Romney, Ryan to reunite in New Hampshire on Monday

(CNN) - Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will reunite on Monday - just over a week after Romney introduced Ryan as his No. 2 - in New Hampshire, a campaign aide said Thursday, the state where Romney's announcement was originally set to take place.

Romney and Ryan campaigned together on Saturday and Sunday, then parted ways Sunday night with a handshake after a rally in Wisconsin, Ryan's home state. Their Monday event will be a town hall meeting at Saint Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire, an official at the venue said.

Romney then continued a bus tour with stops in Florida while Ryan went to the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines, where among those who met him were some hecklers.

Beth Myers, the longtime Romney aide who led the vice presidential search process, told reporters last weekend that the announcement of Ryan was supposed to take place last Friday in New Hampshire. But the memorial service for victims of a Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting last week was also scheduled for Friday, and the decision was made to introduce Ryan at the first stop of Romney's multi-state bus tour on Saturday - in front, as it happened, of the battleship USS Wisconsin.

The most recent poll of New Hampshire, which included voters contacted before and after the Ryan announcement, showed the race between Romney and President Barack Obama is statistically tied: 49% for Obama and 46% for Romney.

Romney owns a house in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire on Lake Winnipesaukee.

    Romney is such a weak front runner, due to the fact he has been depending on the number two person of the ticket to lift up his favorability ratings and carry him across the finish line to the White House.

    Don't worry. They've got that covered too. That's where the voter ID laws come in.

    Funny how when handgun bans are in place, it's the criminals who are the ones with the weapons, huh?
    Can't your recognize sarcasm. The DC handgun law was overturned a long time ago. Chicago's handgun ban was overturned two years ago by a conservative judge, and now they too have an dramatic jump in handgun violence.

    Romney made a fatal choice.

    With Ryan, the gramma killer, this election focus shifted

    From the referendum of Obama to referendum of the DO NOTHING Congress;

    From the job creation economy to health care, social programs;

    From all American inclusive to exclusive to wealth 1%;

    From middle class to Billionnaire privileged benefits;

    The choice never been so clear, focus, and common sense.

    Oh goodie, the bully bishop and the altar boy still won't get a large crowd unless they visit another state fair and they use the folks already there as prop.

    Will Mitt have his little white board with him so Aynn can explain the double talk? Mitt claims "no change" in medicare
    under his agenda. So does this mean no vouchers and no cuts? Has he just tossed his running mate off the cliff?
    What does "NO CHANGE" mean in the world of the R&R team? I'm confused.

    @Ending the American Dream as We Know It -- Great news! I'll have to stop by and cheer them on. But not before I send them another contribution. I consider it an investment in my kids future.
    Thought you wanted to make an investment in your kids future (if you have any) ?? If you consider that an investment by giving money to these two Twits, I've got a bridge in AZ going cheap.
    The closest these 2 will get to the White House is waving at it as the pass by on Pennsylvania Ave. Hahahaha..

    Good. Maybe Mr. Romney can figure out where he stands on Ryan's Medicare plan by then. He was for it in the primarires. He was against it on Sun. and Mon. And, today he is for it again. I can't tell if this is a presidential campaign for an expensive rollout for a new breakfast chain: WILLARD'S WAFFLE FACTORY
