Romney’s Fundraising Push

Mitt Romney spent today in Las Vegas, as fundraisers for him worked the phones at the convention center. Team Romney announced the plan was to raise $2 to $3 million.

Instead, they raised $10.25 million, tweets the Boston Globe’s Matt Viser.

During the day, Romney also had a conference call with supporters and conducted a live q & a on Facebook.

During the Facebook event, Romney said that he would not make cuts in the defense budget. Instead, he proposed slashing discretionary spending and looking ways to reduce entitlement spending, while still ensuring the programs will be funded for future generations.
