Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is holding two fundraisers in London during the evening of July 26, the day before the Olympic Games begin there.
The events are being hosted by a range of business luminaries, including several bankers. The first event is at 5 p.m. with a reception requiring a $2,500 donation, and the second is a 6:30 p.m. dinner requiring at $25,000 to $75,000 donation. Donors must show a U.S. passport, the Boston Globe
The Olympic backdrop is fitting for Romney, who is credited with financially saving the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.
