Romney on the Money Trail
Now comes news that the Romney fund-raising juggernaut has finally been unleashed with this report of two events in NYC this week. The tale of the tape is that Mitt Romney raised more than $1,000,000 from two event in a single day.
Here is Jonathan Martin's report, he the senior political reporter for Politico.
There has been a great deal of speculation about Romney's fund raising prospects in the coming campaign cycle. His Free and Strong America PAC was by far the most successful at raising money, but that was pre-campaign, and the money could not be used in his presidential campaign. There have also been reports of establishment money sitting on the sidelines waiting for the "right" candidate. Well, Romney isn't waiting on them.
And this event was a fairly quiet affair, unlike the publicized call-a-thon later this month in Las Vegas, or the numerous regional fund-raisers that have been scheduled around the country for the remainder of the second quarter for the Romney network of supporters.
