Oscar-winning actor Robert Duvall threw a top-dollar fundraiser at his Virginia farm, attracting Ann Romney and bringing in more than $800,000 for her husband, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
The event was held on Thursday night, Politico

The money raised went to the Romney Victory Fund.
Duvall, 81, is a long-standing Republican supporter, who was invited to George W. Bush's inauruation in 2001. After initially endorsing Rudy Giuliani for the 2008 nomination he voiced many videos for the Republican National Convention and appeared on stage with John McCain and Sarah Palin at a rally in New Mexico.
