Romney to stump in Elk Grove Village on Tuesday: Chicago fund-raisers

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney hits Elk Grove Village in addition to headlining fund-raisers in downtown Chicago on Tuesday in an Illinois campaign swing.

Romney will hold an event at Acme Industries, 1325 Pratt Blvd. in the northwest suburb--territory his campaign worked hard during the March Illinois primary.

The fund-raisers--with ticket prices ranging from $5,000 to $75,000--are aimed at donors from the hospitality and manufacturing industries. Romney plans to host a "manufacturers round-table" at that industry event.

President Barack Obama returns to Chicago Aug. 12 for a series of fund-raisers. On Aug. 15, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and Beth Myers, who is leading Romney's vice president search, hit Chicago for a fund-raiser at the Chicago Hilton and Towers.
