MIDTOWN | Romney planning Atlanta fundraiser | News
ATLANTA -- Campaign officials say Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is planning a fundraiser in Atlanta ahead of Georgia's GOP primary.
The event is scheduled for Wednesday evening at the W Hotel Midtown.
Newt Gingrich's camp hopes his connections in the state put him in a strong position to win a major share of the 76 delegates up for grabs in Georgia -- the biggest prize of the 10 contests on Super Tuesday.
Gingrich aides aren't taking Georgia for granted. Gov. Nathan Deal led a conference call with hundreds of Gingrich supporters last week, and the campaign expects volunteers to fly in from other states to supplement the paid staffers as the primary nears.
