CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Rep. Paul Ryan will hit the campaign trail in Charleston next week to tout Rep. Shelley Moore Capito's bid for U.S. Senate.

Ryan was the 2012 GOP vice presidential nominee for Mitt Romney. Capito's campaign says the Wisconsin Republican will be in West Virginia's capital Monday afternoon to discuss fiscal issues and denounce President Barack Obama's policies.

The president lost West Virginia badly and remains unpopular in the state.

The same day, Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts will campaign for Capito's opponent, Democratic West Virginia Secretary of State Natalie Tennant.

Tennant will roll out an education plan at the Eastern Panhandle event.

Capito and Tennant are vying for retiring Democratic Sen. Jay Rockefeller's seat.
