Mitt Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), the 2012 GOP presidential and vice presidential nominees, respectively, will campaign in September for U.S. House candidate Barbara Comstock (R) of Virginia.

Ryan plans to attend a Sept. 9 event for Comstock, and Romney is set to appear at a Sept. 30 fundraiser at the home of Republican donors Bill and Bobbie Kilberg.

Comstock, who is running for the seat being left vacant by retiring Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.), tweeted the news of Romney and Ryan's planned appearances:

Comstock is currently a member of the Virginia House of Delegates and served as an adviser on Romney's 2012 campaign.

She previously held various roles in national Republican politics, including as chairwoman of Scooter Libby's defense fund and chief counsel on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in the 1990s.

Comstock will face off against Fairfax County Supervisor John Foust (D) in the November general election.
