Mitt Romney plans Seattle-area fundraiser June 4
Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, is planning a fundraising stop in the Seattle area on June 4.
According to a "save the date" email from organizers, Romney plans a $2,500-a-person evening reception. Donors who pay $10,000 a person can attend a VIP reception and photo opportunity.
No other details of the event were immediately available from the Romney campaign or state Republican Party. The email pitch listed the venue as "TBD."
Romney last visited the area in March, rallying supporters before the Republican precinct caucuses, which he won. Romney also visited the area in October, criticizing President Obama on trade policy in a speech at Microsoft.
Although Washington isn't considered a swing state in the presidential election, Romney has a number of wealthy backers centered in the Eastside business community.
The visit could help the former Massachussetts governor narrow his political fundraising gap here.
Washington donors so far have contributed about $1.1 million to Romney's campaign, according to the Federal Election Commission.
Obama already has pulled in about $3.4 million in the state, according to the FEC.
Post corrected to note Romney's last local appearance was in March, not October.
