WINGATE, N.C. (AP) - U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan is coming to a North Carolina university to campaign for GOP Senate nominee Thom Tillis.

The 2012 vice presidential candidate will headline a rally Wednesday at Wingate University with Tillis, who is locked in a tight battle to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan.

The GOP has long listed North Carolina as a top target to help win back the U.S. Senate.

The campaign is considered the most expensive in the country when spending by Hagan, Tillis and outside groups is taken into account. The Center for Responsive Politics says the combined amount is $59 million.
