Republican Mitt Romney is campaigning today in Pennsylvania, a state that polls portray as securely ready to vote for President Barack Obama’s re-election.
He is there for money.
The Romney campaign motorcade rolled out of the Renaissance Hotel in Philadelphia today under a rainy sky bound for the first fundraiser of the day at the Union League Club downtown.
More than 350 tickets have been sold for an event charging $2,500, $10,000 and $50,000, according to the campaign.
Republican Senator Pat Toomey and Pennsylvania party chairman Rob Gleason are expected at the club, which the pool reporter on the scene describes as living up to its name, a venue decorated with “large, extravagant paintings and exquisite carpets.”
