Romney plans Aug. 23 fundraiser in Minnesota

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has scheduled  Aug. 23 fundraisers at the Lafayette Club in Minnetonka Beach and a Shorewood home.

The invitation highlights three hosts: former U.S. Sen. Rudy Boschwitz, former Gov. Tim Pawlenty and former U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman.

Contribution for a photo reception at the club: $10,000 per couple. General reception contribution: $2,500 per individual.

    Romney’s Minnesota visit

    I bet Romney is stopping by to thank Minnesota property tax payers for paying the bills for his millionaire Minnesota contributors, so he could buy air time spread spurious lies about the President, his legislative initiatives, foreign policy, and historical facts.

    $10,000 to pose for a photo with Romney? He’d have to pay me….
