GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM)-With the November election days away, the brother of Vice Presidential Nominee Paul Ryan visited West Michigan this weekend.

Tobin Ryan and his wife, Oakleigh, traveled across Michigan Saturday to thank volunteers for their support. They stopped by the Kent County Republican Party headquarters before continuing on to the Ottawa County GOP office in Holland.

"This ground game--getting the votes out, making these calls, knocking on your neighbor's door, knocking on a few others' doors-that's how we're really going to win this, particularly in this state," said Tobin Ryan.

This isn't the first time the Ryans have backed their brother. The couple spent eight months helping Paul Ryan's run for Congress in 1997.
