Romney's Whirlwind Weekend in Va

Anita Kumar

Mitt Romney, who's considering another run for president in 2012, will spend the weekend right here in the Old Dominion helping the state's top Republicans get elected.

The former Massachusetts governor will be the headliner at the sold-out Commonwealth Gala in downtown Richmond Friday night as part of the annual state GOP convention.

He will be featured at a trio of fundraisers across the state for Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling, who was Romney's campaign in Virginia last year before he dropped out of the race. He will also make an appearance at an Arlington business forum on the Employee Free Choice Act, the federal legislation that would make it easier to form a union.

Romney is hoping he won't be forgotten in Virginia -- now a swing state in presidential elections -- come 2012.

More than 11,000 activists from across the state are expected to attend the state's GOP convention this weekend.

Talk show host Sean Hannity is the featured guest Saturday -- a day that also includes a major speech by GOP gubernatorial nominee Bob McDonnell and the selection of a new chairman and party nominees for lieutenant governor and attorney general.
