Chicago Sun Times reports Romney in town to raise $2 million or more -
Romney hits Elk Grove Village to deliver remarks about the economy at Acme Industries and then motorcades downtown for a lunch roundtable targeted to manufacturers at Harry Caray’s — priced from $10,000 to $75,800 per ticket. After that he hops over to Maggiano’s a few blocks away for an event aimed at donors from the hospitality industry — with the tab ranging from $5,000 to $50,000.
The local haul for Romney comes on the news Monday that his campaign and the Republican National Committee raised $101.3 million in July — thumping the joint Obama and Democratic National Committee total of $75 million last month.
