HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan will make a stop in Huntsville Friday morning.

A GOP fundraiser will be held at the Von Braun Center.

Huntsville is the only city he will visit in Alabama.

It is not uncommon for political candidates to choose the Rocket City. President Barack Obama, President Bill Clinton, Bob Dole, and Ted Kennedy have all made the trip.

WAFF Political Analyst Dr. Waymon Burke said that is because candidates know they can find strong support within the aerospace industry and the military.

He said the money raised in Huntsville will go toward swaying undecided voters in other states.

"I suspect the money here will go to Ohio, Virginia, Nevada, and Iowa, where whatever those voters do will determine the outcome of this election," explained Burke.

The event starts at 11:30 a.m.

Admission is $1,000 and it costs $5,000 to have your photo taken with Ryan.
