MADISON -- House Speaker Paul Ryan won't be joining Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence at a Wisconsin rally.
 
Pence is slated to campaign Wednesday night in Ryan's home state. The rally in Waukesha is about 60 miles from Ryan's home in Janesville.
Ryan introduced Pence at the Republican National Convention last week and has praised his addition to the ticket. Ryan has also been lukewarm on Trump, even though he plans to vote for him.
 
An aide to Ryan says he will be out of state Wednesday raising money for House Republicans.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker does plan to join Pence for the rally, the Indiana governor's first solo campaign stop since being selected as Donald Trump's running mate nearly two weeks ago.
