LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - State GOP officials say Mitt Romney will visit Arkansas for a fundraiser next week.
Party spokeswoman Katherine Vasilos says Romney will be in Little Rock on Wednesday. It's the first Arkansas visit for Romney since he became the presumptive Republican nominee for president.
A Romney campaign spokesman declined to comment.
The fundraiser comes less than a week before the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla.
The visit was first reported by Stephens Media Group. An invitation to the fundraiser says receptions will be held at the Peabody Hotel followed by dinner at the Capital Hotel in Little Rock. The invitation also lists the Republican members of Arkansas' congressional delegation as special guests.
The dinner costs $50,000 per couple. The receptions range from $2,500 per person to $25,000 per couple.
