Inauguration Day may be nine months away, but that’s not stopping Mitt Romney from cashing in on the possibility that he could be president-elect by then.
In a fundraising plea circulated by a Georgia supporter andobtained by Buzzfeed, the campaign was said to be “asking people who are able to make a $50,000 contribution to do so today and become a ‘Founding Member’ of Romney Victory,” a new joint fundraising committee that allows Romney to rake in larger donations than he had been collecting through his single campaign committee.
In return, the campaign is offering invitations to “a special retreat in late June in California,” “yet to be determined access” at the GOP convention in August, and “preferred status” at a presidential inaugural retreat.
The $50,000 contribution required for this special access is steep, but still below the legal maximum of $75,800 that an individual can give to the committee.
