Rep. Paul Ryan, the 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee, will attend Monday's inauguration of Barack Obama, his office confirmed to Newsmax.
"He has a number of constituents from Wisconsin's First Congressional District who will also be attending," spokesman Kevin Seifert said. "I expect him to spend the day just like any member of Congress will do."
Seifert referred questions concerning his plans for 2016 to Ryan's congressional campaign office.
Having elevated to the national spotlight in 2012, the chairman of the House Budget Committee has not publicly discussed his plans since the campaign ended, though he is considered to be in the top tier of potential presidential candidates in the next cycle.
The public inaugural ceremony of President Obama is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 21. The oath of office will be administered on the West Front steps of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.
