UPDATE: Mitt Romney will hold a rally at Somers Furniture -- see flier at right -- Tuesday afternoon to push a meme of the president as a job-destroyer before the fundraiser. The company, like many others, has been hurt by the recession.
A fundraiser in las Vegas on May 29 for presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney is designed to raise $2 million at the Trump International Hotel, according to internal campaign documents, which also reveal how one of the campaign plans to get to 270 electoral votes -- a pitch to entice donors for the event.
The invite, posted at right, indicates six tiers of possible contributions:
Event chair -- Raise $250,000
Co-chair -- Raise $50,000
Co-host -- $25,000
Photo with Romney -- $10,000
General reception ticket -- $2,500
Founding member dessert reception -- $50,000 (My favorite one: "LOCATION PROVIDED UPON COMPLETION OF $50,000 CONTRIBUTION")
According to other internal campaign documents from a Nevada finance committee briefing, as of May 8, $675,000 had been pledged for the event, which has a goal of $2 million. A pitch to donors also suggests the "3-2-1" plan, written about elsewhere, to win the presidency.
3 -- Win back the three "historically GOP" states -- Indiana, Virginia and North Carolina, worth 39 electoral votes (gets him to 219)
2--Win the two big swing states George W. Bush won -- Ohio and Florida, worth 47 electoral votes (266)
1 -- Win any of the so-called "wild-card" states -- NH, NM, NV, IA, CO, WI, MI, PA
