Romney To Visit Oklahoma, And Attend GOP Fundraiser

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is planning to visit Oklahoma next week as he runs for the Republican presidential nomination.

Oklahoma Republican Party Chairman Matt Pinnell says Romney will attend a private fundraiser on Oct. 21 and has agreed to join the state party for a fundraiser later that morning. Pinnell says the
Oklahoma GOP event, called the 2012 Victory Rally, will cost $20.12 per person to attend.

Pinnell says the event is not an endorsement of Romney. He says all the GOP presidential candidates have been extended the same invitation.

Pinnell says visits to Oklahoma by presidential candidates energizes state Republicans and "reminds people that we have an historic election."

Texas Gov. Rick Perry came to Oklahoma for several private fundraisers in August.
