But one good source close to the campaign has spilled the beans: Romney and some of his biggest fundraisers spent part of the day in the executive lunchroom of a New York law firm Weil Gotshal & Manges, making phone calls to recruit other financial rainmakers.
The Fifth Avenue firm has one of the country’s leading bankruptcy practices.
The big excitement of the day was not the candidate, however, but the Donald.
The source said Donald Trump showed up and actually got on the phone with potential fundraisers. Some of the other big moneymen there were so thrilled by the appearance of an honest-to-goodness celebrity that they interrupted their phone time to ask him to pose for pictures.
