Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney will make two fundraising stops in New Jersey today.
Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, will be in Lakewood this afternoon for a $1,000-per-plate reception at Lake Terrace Hall, according to NJ.com. Those who wish closer access can pay $10,000 for a VIP photo reception and $25,000 for a roundtable with the likely GOP nominee.
This evening Romney will attend a dinner at the Rumson home of Lewis M. Eisenberg, with guests paying an undisclosed contribution, according to APP.com.
Ocean County Republican Chairman George Gilmore, a delegate to the GOP National Convention, and attorney Larry Bathgate will host the Lakewood fundraiser, which NJ.com reports will be attended by former Gov. Tom Kean, Sen. Tom Kean Jr. (R-Union) and Sen. James Holzapfel (R-Ocean), among hundreds of others.
Bathgate told App.com that Republicans aim to raise about $2 million from the two fundraisers.
