Romney headlining Md. GOP fundraising dinner
Mitt Romney, a 2008 presidential contender who is eyeing another bid in 2012, will be the featured speaker Thursday night at an annual fundraising dinner for the Maryland Republican Party.
Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, is headlining the Red, White and Blue Dinner at a time when the Maryland GOP is seeking to replenish its finances in a promising year for Republicans nationally.
The state party's most high-profile candidate for 2010 -- former governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) -- is expected to attend the dinner, as is Republican National Committee Chairman Michael S. Steele, Ehrlich's former lieutenant governor.
The campaign of Ehrlich, who is seeking to win his job back from Gov. Martin O'Malley (D), announced Wednesday that Romney would also accompany Ehrlich to the early evening baseball game of Ehrlich's 10-year-old son, Drew, in Arnold.
Receptions for the 20th annual Red, White and Blue dinner start at 7 p.m., with the meal and program scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. at a hotel near the Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.
