Road Closures, Parking Restrictions Set For Paul Ryan's Visit

The vice presidential candidate will visit Oldsmar on Saturday morning.

On Saturday morning, Sept. 15, Republican Vice-Presidential nominee Paul Ryan will make a stop in Oldsmar to rally supporters.

Ryan, the running mate to Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, will make his appearance at R.E. Olds Park, 107 Shore Drive West, in Oldsmar. Doors open at 9 a.m. The event begins at 11 a.m.

Spectators are asked to park at Tampa Bay Downs, 11225 Race Track Road. Buses will transport spectators to and from the park starting at 7:30 a.m., said Lyndsay Keith, a Ryan campaign spokesperson.

"Hopefully that will eliminate any parking frustration," Keith said.

Those driving through the area should be aware that the roads surrounding the park will be closed off around the time of the event. Law enforcement will be in the area enforcing blockades. Those attending the rally can park in the surrounding neighborhood at their own risk, say organizers.

Security will be similar to an airport checkpoint. No signs, sharp objects or umbrellas will be allowed into the event.

Those interested in going must reserve a free ticket by visiting www.MittRomney.com/states/florida

Then Go to "Find Events Near You" and RSVP.

Can we get some people out there to show the slimeball he isn't welcome in Tampa Bay? At least not by many of us... His views on women and rape make me sick to my stomach... I'd find a spot to do so if i could make it over there...

Well, since the roads are going to be closed to traffic, maybe we can lace up our marathon shoes and run there in a "sub three" time. Lying at the podium makes Ryan a politician. Lying about his personal life just makes him a liar. Eddie Munster's not ready for primetime.

Hmmm. Wonder what Paul Ryan will lie about today. He is such an accomplished LIAR!
Joseph Robert September 15, 2012 at 03:07 PM
Of course they don't want any signs brought to the event. That's censorship, similar to what is done in Russia today. Heaven forbid if someone brought a "MITT, WHERE ARE YOUR TAX RETURNS?" sign, or a "MITT, YOU HAVE CREATED THOUSANDS OF JOBS, WHILE OBAMA HAS CREATED 4 MILLION JOBS! YOU SUCK!" sign.

Very mature comment - not. I guess you have not figured out that your extremism does not resonate with very many people.

I THINK you meant 'Laundry"...... (unless of course you're a Cowboys fan!)

FYI Folks, the 1st Amendment no longer exists near the oligarchs..........and of course this NeoCON Ryan voted to restrict our Freedoms. www.govtrack.us/congress/votes/112-2011/h149 I know it's foreign to most of you to actually read Bills and truly see what's occurring right in front of our faces......instead, the majority buy into the Left/Right paradigm only believe what the liars tell them........as you spout their talking points, attempting to sound knowledgeable. Sorry to burst your bubble, but if you are relying on the TV or Newspapers for you info, you truly are clueless. Obama sucks, Romney does too. Wake the F up!
