Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will be in Atlanta next week for a high-end fund-raiser in the backyard of two of his rivals, Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain.
See the June 16 invite list – always a good measure of who’s lining up behind whom – by clicking here. It’s loaded with business types. Tickets are $5,000 per couple (photo included) or $1,000 per head for general admission.
The event is at a private residence. No word yet on any public appearances by Romney.
Hosts include Attorney General Sam Olens; former state House leader Mark Burkhalter; and John Brock, CEO of Coca-Cola Enterprises and current chair of Metro Atlanta Chamber.
Long-time Romney supporters Eric Tanenblatt, Mark DeMoss and Ric Mayfield are part of the shindig – but the freshest name may be that of Heath Garrett, former chief of staff to U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson.
