Romney to Visit Hillsborough for Private Fundraiser

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney will be attending a fundraiser at a private estate at Strawberry Hill.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is making a visit to the Bay Area Friday for a private fundraising event in Hillsborough, according to his campaign.

Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, will be attending a fundraiser at 4:45 p.m. at a private estate at Strawberry Hill, according to an invitation for the event posted on a website for a local Republican group.

Tickets for the event, which is closed to media, cost between $1,000 and $50,000 per person, campaign officials said.

Hillsborough police said parking will be prohibited and traffic will be delayed in certain parts of the town between 2 p.m. and 9 p.m., including Skyfarm Drive, Macadamia Drive, Redington Road and parts of Eucalyptus Avenue.

Residents are advised to use alternate routes through the area, police said.

President Barack Obama is also expected to visit the Bay Area for a fundraiser prior to the November election. The president's campaign announced Thursday that Obama will be visiting San Francisco on Oct. 8.

Mitt Romney’s Magic Mormon Underwear protects him from the evils of the world including socialism, illegal immigrants, homosexuals and taxes on his wealth. Can these sacred garments also make it rain down enough cash for a victory in this race since well over 90% of public offices are bought in our country by Big Money?

Brandt, Thanks for the kind words.... Did you mention the millions he gave to the less fortunate?

the Romney's donated nearly 5 million dollars to charities, just about 30% of their income, they could have had an even larger tax break, but choose not to go that route, I bet Brandt wouldn't make jokes about a candidate that was of the Muslim faith, that would be too scary,
