Mitt Romney to host Providence fundraiser for Fung

By: Dee DeQuattro


Former Presidential Candidate and Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney will come to Rhode Island next week to host a high end fundraiser for Republican Candidate for Governor Allan Fung.

Romney officially endorsed Fung prior to the Republican Primary in September but has not made a public visit to the Ocean State since 2012 when he made a campaign stop in Warwick.

The event will be held at the Biltmore Hotel in Providence. Ticket prices for the event range from $250 to $1000.  

Romney is set to visit Rhode Island less than one week after New Jersey Governor and speculated GOP Candidate for President Chris Christie is set to visit and host a campaign event for Fung.
