Romney Schedules Raleigh Fundraiser Thursday

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will be in Raleigh tomorrow for a fundraiser.

It's his first visit to North Carolina since announcing his presidential bid.

The fundraiser will be held at the home of Carolina Hurricanes general manager Jim Rutherford and his wife. Supporters will pay $500 a person to attend the event. Romney's state coordinator Hill Carrow says others will have to pay more for a photograph and special reception with Romney.

Carrow says he hopes the event will raise at least $100,000.
