An earlier story follows:
Mitt Romney and newly named running mate Paul Ryan are scheduled to appear in New Hampshire on Monday, a campaign official has confirmed.
Jim Merrill, the campaign's senior adviser for New Hampshire, Tweeted that the pair will be appearing in Manchester on Monday for a town hall meeting, Romney's 100th such event.
"Looking forward to having @MittRomney and @PaulRyanVP in Manchester, #NH on Monday for Gov. Romney's 100th town hall!" Merrill's Tweet reads.
No further details about the visit have been released. The visit will come two days after President Obama is scheduled to make stops in Windham and Rochester.
The Obama campaign issued a press release moments ago in response to the planned New Hampshire visit by Romney and Ryan.
"In the Granite State Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are going to have a hard time explaining their shared principle of saying yes to millionaires and no to Medicare," said OFA-NH Press Secretary Harrell Kirstein. "The Romney-Ryan agenda puts 125,160 New Hampshire small businesses at risk of a tax hike. If the Romney-Ryan budget was in place and cuts were applied across the board, 21,000 New Hampshire students would see their Pell grants cut by an average of $800, and 221,000 New Hampshire seniors would see Medicare turned into a voucher system, increasing their health care costs by thousands of dollars.
"Romney-Ryan is wrong for New Hampshire students, wrong for New Hampshire seniors and wrong for middle class New Hampshire families."
