Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan came to Fresno this weekend, as part of his West coast fundraising tour. The Wisconsin congressman briefly spoke at a fundraising dinner (tickets: $1,000 to $25,000) and didn’t say much that was newsworthy. Probably the most interesting part of the¬†event was the protest rally organized by a dozen central California organizations and the counter protest rally, organized by the Fresno State College Republicans. Here are some of the photos I filed:
