Republican candidate Donald Trump will campaign with House Speaker Paul Ryan in the speaker's home district in southeastern Wisconsin, in what will be their first appearance together, The Hill reports.
The two will appear at the city of Elkhorn's annual Wisconsin Fall Fest along with fellow Republicans Sen. Ron Johnson, Gov. Scott Walker, and state GOP chairman Brad Courtney, according to a press release from Ryan's office.
"Presidential nominee, Donald J. Trump will also join Wisconsin Republicans at the 1st Congressional District Republican Party of Wisconsin Fall Fest," was included "almost as an aside," after the listing of several Republican elected officials from the state, according to Politico.
The Hill's source familiar with the event said Trump expressed interested in appearing with Ryan at an event, and that he accepted an invitation from Ryan to the Fall Fest, which the speaker attends every year.
Aides in Ryan's office told Politico that he views his job currently as helping retain Republican control of Congress and keeping Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton out of the White House. Ryan showed his support recently, complimenting Trump's performance at the first presidential debate and refusing to admonish the billionaire for his feud with former Miss America Alicia Machado.
Trump and Ryan have a contentious relationship, with the pair frequently sparring over Trump's controversial rhetoric and proposals, such as a ban on Muslims entering the country and his failure to rebuke a white supremacist supporter.
The event will be held only one day prior to Trump's second debate with Clinton, and will be the first time the two have campaigned together since the Republican National Convention in July.
