Fresh off of his weekend in the Hamptons, Mitt Romney is hosting another round of swanky fundraisers this week, this time with high-dollar donors and well-heeled socialites of the Mountain West. The Rocky Mountain sweep is an indication that Romney is not letting up on his fundraising push after last month’s record-breaking haul. The Romney campaign destroyed President Barack Obama for the second consecutive month in June, beating the President’s re-election campaign by more than $35 million.
If this week’s high-dollar donor events are any clue, Romney is poised for another huge fundraising month. The candidate will hobnob at the homes and country clubs of deep-pocketed donors in Aspen and Jackson Hole this week, including at a private event hosted by former Vice President Dick Cheney at his Wyoming mansion.
His hosts included Chicago heiress Susan Crown, who welcomed the candidate to her $18.1 million estate in Owl Creek.
On Thursday, he'll head to Jackson Hole for an event hosted by the Cheneys and several of their ultra-rich friends. Here's the invite (note that only the biggest donors get to attend the private dinner at the Cheney home)
Along with venture capitalist Allan Tessler, the former CEO of Data Broadcasting Corp., and his wife, Frances.
The donors will likely hear Romney speak in one of the country club's expensively rustic dining rooms.
VIP donors will be invited to have a private dinner at the Cheney mansion with the candidate and the former vice president.
