HIGHLAND BEACH, FL.--The Mitt Romney campaign is looking for a fund-raising spurt to fund ads in the crucial battleground states--with a fund-raiser Nov. 2 at the Chicago home of Ron and Christina Gidwitz expected to raise about $1 million--with tickets ranging from $1,000 to $75,800 per person. The headliners at the Near North Side reception are Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) and Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell--with Virginia one of the top tier battleground states.

The price points:

ROMNEY VICTORY MAX OUT CONTRIBUTOR $75,800 PER PERSON
ROMNEY VICTORY FOUNDING MEMBER $50,000 PER PERSON
PRIVATE DINNER $10,000 PER PERSON
VIP PHOTO-OP RECEPTION $ 2,500 PER PERSON

From the invite: "PROCEEDS FROM THIS EVENT WILL GO TOWARDS BUYING ADDITIONAL ROMNEY VICTORY MEDIA SPOTS IN BATTLEGROUND STATES."

Other hosts, besides the Gidwitzs' are Muneer Satter, the Illinois Romney Victory Finance Chairman and National Finance co-chairman, the Illinois GOP congressional delegation and Illinois State Treasurer Dan Rutherford, the Illinois Romney campaign chairman.
