    Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan was in the Bay Area this weekend.

    He began his Saturday at a fundraising breakfast at the Danville home of Brent and Dana Jones. Brent Jones is the former 49er football player.

    Tickets for the 8 a.m. event started at $1,000, with "Club Mitt" members asked to pay $5,000. For  $10,000 you can get a photo with the candidate. 

    It was a private event, meaning the media was not allowed inside.

    After breakfast, Ryan headed across the Bay to Google headquarters in Mountain View for a Google online "hangout."

    Ryan answered questions from workers at GOP campaign offices in Nevada, Wisconsin, Virginia and Florida.

    The session lasted about 15 minutes. Some of it is posted below.

    By Saturday night Ryan will be in Fresno raising even more money for the Romney campaign.

    On Sunday Ryan will head up to a remote part of Oregon with several aides and advisers for the “first of many sessions,” gearing up for the Oct. 11 debate with Vice President Joe Biden, NBC’s First Read team reported.

    “I think what we will be doing is just working through some of the most likely topics, some likely questions and just working through answers, counterpoints to Vice President Biden’s arguments and answers,” one adviser told NBC.
