By Philip Rucker,
Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign is planning a trio of major fundraising events in the Washington area later in June, including a $50,000-per-person private dinner in Georgetown with the presumptive Republican nominee.
Romney is holding an exclusive dinner June 27 at the Georgetown home of George and Suzy Pence, which will cost $50,000 a person, according to an invitation obtained by The Washington Post.
Meanwhile, two of Romney’s potential vice presidential running mates, Sen. Rob Portman (Ohio) and Rep. Paul Ryan (Wis.), will be the special guests at a June 25 reception at a downtown Washington rooftop geared toward young professionals. Tickets begin at $100, with co-hosts asked to give or raise $5,000.
Romney’s wife, Ann, will headline a dinner fundraiser near Baltimore-Washington International Airport hosted by former Maryland governor Bob Ehrlich and his wife, Kendel. Tickets begin at $1,000, with dinner costing $15,000 per person.
The three events are expected to raise more than $2 million jointly for the Romney campaign and the Republican National Committee, according to a Romney fundraiser.
