Mitt Romney will be in Utah next month to raise money for his presidential campaign, his first visit to the state since becoming the presumptive Republican nominee.
"People were excited when Mitt Romney was running to be president and trying to get the nomination. Now that it's a foregone conclusion that he's going to be the nominee, Republicans in Utah are ecstatic," said Utah Republican Party Chairman Thomas Wright. "They recognize what he did in Utah [during the 2002 Winter Olympics] and the exact same thing needs to happen in the country and he's got the skills and vision and experience to make it happen."
Romney will be in the Beehive State on June 8 for at least two events a dinner at Grand America for donors who give $2,500 to his campaign, and a VIP reception for those who give at least $10,000 to the Romney Victory Fund.
