Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan will return to Washington on Thursday to meet with House GOP lawmakers and vote on welfare legislation, a Republican leadership aide said.
Ryan’s return on Thursday is likely to be his last visit to Capitol Hill before the November election. No House votes are scheduled after Friday until mid-November.
The welfare bill voices the House’s disapproval with an Obama administration move that Republicans say weakens work requirements in the Clinton-era welfare reform law.
Ryan will also attend the weekly House Republican conference meeting in the morning at the Republican National Committee headquarters, the aide said.
