Romney Raising Money

More

Ok, so former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has no chance of becoming health care czar. His political future is still with the Republican Party. Romney is holding a major fundraiser in Washington, D.C. for his political action committee, the Free and Strong America PAC, on 2/17, according to an invitation sent out to donors.

 

 

"As you know, Mitt is still politically active in supporting many causes and candidates throughout the country," the e-mail says. (Note: The "as you know" line is supposed to inform donors who might not still know this.   The e-mail continues: "In 2008, Mitt did events for 33 federal candidates running for office and 37 surrogate events for Senator McCain and Governor Palin.   In addition, the Free and Strong America PAC made contributions to over 150 contests at the federal and state level.  We are very happy to report that of the contests where the Free Strong America PAC provided financial support, we had a 60% win rate." 

Invitations to breakfast at the Marriott Wardman Park cost a measly $1,000.  A private roundtable with Mitt costs $5,000 a pop. (Or, you can become a journalist and get him on the phone for free.)
