Romney plans Seattle visit Mar. 1
Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney has scheduled a campaign stop in Seattle in advance of the state's Mar. 3 GOP caucuses.
A Mar. 1 cocktail fundraiser, at a location yet to be determined, is being advertised in a "save the date" invitation sent to potential Romney donors.
The price tag for the event is $1,000 per person, and $2,500 for a VIP photo opportunity with the former Massachussetts governor, according to a copy of the invitation.
It's likely this won't be Romney's only event in the state - look for him to also schedule public or media appearences.
As we reported Sunday, Romney and U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, have laid the most groundwork so far here, among the remaining Republican presidential candidates. Washington's caucuses could serve as a springboard for the campaigns heading into the crucial "Super Tuesday" contests three days later.
