Romney Appearing in Kentucky for Fundraiser

by admin on October 31, 2011

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is scheduled to vist in Kentucky on November 17 to attend a fundraiser hosted by an influential businessman who is known as the “face of coal” in the commonwealth.

The big-ticket event will be the former governor of Massachusetts’ first stop in the commonwealth during his 2012 bid for the GOP nomination to challenge President Obama.

From Pure Politics:

Romney … will appear at an evening reception at the Kentucky Aviation Museum in Lexington hosted by coal company owner Joe Craft and Republican fundraiser Kelly Knight, according to a save-the-date card for the event.

Individuals who raise at least $10,000 for Romney’s campaign qualify for a “host committee reception” with the candidate. Those who give the federal maximum of $2,500 — or $5,000 for a couple — get their picture taken with Romney at a “VIP photo reception.” And those who give $1,000 — or $2,000 per couple — can attend the general reception.

The former governor of Massachusetts has already made waves in the commonwealth for receiving the endorsement of Republican Congressmen Hal Rogers and Ed Whitefield.
