Conn. GOP gathers for Ann Romney on eve of primary
STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Hundreds of Republicans are gathering in Stamford to hear Ann Romney, the wife of the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, on the eve of Connecticut's primary.
Ann Romney's speech marks her first major event since her husband, Mitt Romney, all but clinched the Republican nomination.
The former governor of neighboring Massachusetts is expected to easily win Connecticut on Tuesday.
Monday's event at the Stamford Marriott, the annual Prescott Bush Awards Dinner, is a fundraiser for the Connecticut Republicans. Individual tickets are $250 each; $1,250 for a photo reception with Ann Romney and other dignitaries; and $5,000 for a VIP reception. Organizers said more than 700 people are expected to attend.
A host of state Republican candidates, including those for U.S. Senate, are on hand for the dinner.
