Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan, a congressman from Wisconsin, will begin running television ads for his congressional re-election campaign, the Associated Press reports:

Contracts formalized Tuesday with at least one Milwaukee television station show that Ryan's congressional ads will start airing Wednesday morning and go initially for two weeks. Ryan's congressional campaign manager confirmed that ads defending the seat will run but said additional details would come later.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney tapped Ryan to be his running mate in August. Ryan is simultaneously running for the vice presidency and his Wisconsin House seat.
