LAS VEGAS — Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is returning to Las Vegas to collect more campaign donations, and for a small fee, you could partake.
Romney’s campaign said Thursday the former Massachusetts governor will host a $2,500-per-person fundraiser at a Lawry’s restaurant in Las Vegas on June 17.
Romney raised $10.25 million during a one-day national phone bank in Las Vegas last month. He is the only major GOP presidential contender focusing on Nevada so far. He has made several visits to the Silver State in recent months.
Nevada is scheduled to host the nation’s third presidential nomination primary on Feb. 18, after New Hampshire and Iowa.
