Roanoke, VA - Republican Vice Presidential Paul Ryan candidate is back in Roanoke Friday.

Ryan's plane landed at the Roanoke Regional Airport before heading to a private fundraiser.

Guests say he held a VIP reception at 5:30 p.m., and tickets for that event cost $10,000.

Right now, there's a general reception going on.

During a campaign stop in Harrisonburg earlier Friday, Ryan took a moment to salute the Americans who lost their lives in Libya.

"I'd like to ask for a moment of silence for our Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glenn Dougherty and Tyrone Woods. Let's have a moment of silence in prayer and recognition for these heroes."

The four men were killed in an attack this week on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. A Libyan government official says four people have been arrested in connection with the deadly attack.

We'll have reaction from guests at the reception in Roanoke and a full wrap of the event on ABC 13 News at 11.
