REPORTER HERALD- It seems that Paul Ryan can't get enough of Northern Colorado.
The Romney campaign announced Friday morning that the Republican vice presidential candidate will speak at a rally at Johnson's Corner on Monday.
Doors to the event will open at 11 a.m., and the program is scheduled to start at 1 p.m., according to the Romney website.
The Romney campaign has been hitting Colorado hard in the last days of the campaign. Romney will speak in Englewood on Saturday, and Ryan has paid two visits to Northern Colorado -- a rally in Timnath on Sept. 26 and another in Greeley on Thursday.
The Johnson's Corner truck stop, 2842 Southeast Interstate 25 Frontage Road, is at Exit 254, just south of Loveland.
Food service manager Bob Reichelderfer said the folks at Johnson's Corner didn't invite the Ryan campaign, but they're happy to play host. "It's more the location than anything else," he said. "We've been here a few years, and we're a little bit of a landmark."
"It's quite an honor, actually," said Reichelderfer, who added that he hadn't heard official confirmation yet from the campaign.
Reichelderfer said someone from Ryan's advance team called Wednesday night, and team members checked out the venue Thursday.
He said the campaign wanted a spot that could hold a couple hundred people, and team members were checking out the parking lot at the northwest corner of the restaurant building.
Johnson's Corner, which is most famous for its cinnamon rolls, will provide the pastries to its Republican visitors, Reichelderfer said.
And he'll send some along with the team when they leave, he added. "If they'll take 'em, we sure will."
