TODAY is the Best Day to Donate to Mitt’s Campaign! Don’t Miss the Live Townhall Today at 3:00 EST

We have been collecting pledges for over a month now and finally TODAY is the DAY to donate to Mitt’s campaign!

It doesn’t matter if you made a pledge previously because anyone and everyone should at least chip in a few dollars today to help Mitt blow away his fundraising goal for the day. I fully expect today to be the largest single-day fund-raiser for Mitt’s campaign for the entire primary season. If you think you may donate to Mitt any time before the actual voting starts, TODAY is the DAY to have your donation have the biggest impact.

Up to 1,000 supporters of Gov. Romney are at the Las Vegas Convention Center at an event called National Call Day. The campaign has developed software (ComMitt) aimed at aiding volunteers in raising the most amount of money in the least amount of time. Gov. Romney has amassed an impressive list on contributors over the last many years and he would like as many of them as possible to donate today.

Gov. Romney hosted a live Townhall event followed by a Question & Answer session. We watched it live and you may watch it here again once the video is posted.

UPDATE 4 by Jayde - Scene where it’s all happening right now at National Call Day in the Las Vegas convention center:

On conference call with supporters earlier today, Gov. Romney said that he can win on the economy.

UPDATE 5 by Jayde: There may be Romney supporters who think The Gov’s big donors will take care of him or that he has plenty of his own money, or that your donation today wouldn’t matter. If so, remember this. Any donation, no matter the size, is GREATLY appreciated by Governor Romney. It shows him that you believe in him – enough to give your hard-earned money to him. A donation will solidify your own interest in the well-being of his campaign. You will find yourself more engaged and willing to help Gov Romney get America back on track. And, that’s a good thing.

I encourage everyone to donate at least $10 for Mitt today (more, if possible)!That’s an amount that can be easily compensated in one’s budget by eating a sack lunch this week or using a few grocery store coupons. Like my Mama used to say “Many hands make light work!” If we ALL donate, we can send a strong message for Mitt. This is the day to show Mitt how much you care about our nation. No matter how small the donation, please donate to Governor Romney today. America needs him!

Gov. Mitt Romney’s First Letter to Us Since Forming an Exploratory Committee

As a donor to Gov. Mitt Romney in the past, I received this letter in the mail and altered it to apply to all of us. It’s obviously very important that Gov. Romney raises a lot of money to catch up as quickly as possible to the enormous and potentially unprecedented campaign President Obama is assembling.

There has been a lot of speculation lately about the 2012 Presidential Election.

I have officially taken the first step to run for President of the United States by filing a Presidential Campaign Exploratory Committee.

Obviously, running for President is a huge undertaking and it’s not a decision I take lightly.

In this campaign, I need the strong early support of friends like you.

As part of this exploratory process, I am gauging support and need to know if you’re behind me. What we do in these early weeks will lay the groundwork for a successful campaign.

Will you do me the honor of pledging your early support to our Exploratory Committee by contributing $20.12, $50, $100, or some other amount?

I believe in America — in free enterprise, capitalism, limited government, and federalism. I believe in the American dream. I believe that the principles that made America the leader of the world today are the very principles that will keep America the leader of the world tomorrow. And I wholeheartedly believe that America needs unapologetic conservative leadership.

Our country is facing an economic crises and an increasingly uncertain world. Our President has failed us. It’s become painfully clear that he does not believe in America and that lack of faith in our American values and way of life has made us weaker and less free.

I do not apologize for America because I “Believe in America”!

Once I officially announce my decision to run, we will need to hit the ground running. The best way to do that is to have a head start on fundraising.

Establishing the Exploratory Committee is the first step in the process of becoming a candidate. I am excited to embark on this journey and need you by my side every step of the way.

Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney has announced his Exploratory Committee! Though we don’t know the details we are certain that a big kick-off fundraiser will occur some time in May. In 2007, Gov. Romney’s campaign raised a record-breaking $6.5 million in a single day! Can we help break Mitt’s record this time around? We want to do our part to help make this a huge event for Mitt. PLEASE click here to make your pledge and we’ll contact you on that hopefully record-making day so you can be a part of history!

Mitt Romney’s Message Inspires Donors at New York City’s Harvard Club

Governor Romney is on a blitz to gather the phenomenal amount of money needed to see his potential presidential campaign through the primaries and take the battle eye-to-eye to Obama.

The day after announcing his presidential exploratory committee, Romney breakfasted with deep-pocket donors at the Harvard Club in New York City on Tuesday (4/12/11):

Mitt Romney, wasting no time reeling in the cash for his presidential campaign, held a meeting with high-dollar donors in New York City on Tuesday, a day after announcing his exploratory committee for president.

All attendees pledged at least $25,000, but donors say many of the bundlers will raise between $100,000 and $250,000. The $50 million fund-raising goal that came up at the last meeting was not mentioned Tuesday.

[Tom] Foley, who also served as the ambassador to Ireland during the second Bush administration, said the crowd was enthusiastic that the exploratory committee is official.

“People can jump in and begin supporting him in the best way they are able to do that,” Foley told The Daily Beast. “There is a gathering sense of momentum when everybody gets together. The gun has been fired and it was exciting for everyone.”

With Romney’s exploratory committee activated, donors like the ones who attended the Harvard Club gathering—who have already pledged between $25,000 and $100,000—can start to write checks to the committee, which is expected to become a full-fledged campaign in the coming months. In attendance Tuesday were New York Jets owner Woody Johnson, former Bush Treasury official Emil Henry, hedge fund manager Anthony Scaramucci, financier Patrick Durkin, and former Goldman Sachs chairman John Whitehead, all of whom attended a similar breakfast fund-raiser for Romney last month. New faces included Tom Foley, who unsuccessfully ran for governor of Connecticut last November, and hedge fund manager John Paulson, who along with Johnson spoke at the meeting.
…Investment banker Lewis Eisenberg, who served as John McCain’s 2008 finance chairman and helped plan the breakfast meeting, said most people in the room Tuesday morning believe Romney is the GOP’s best shot in 2012.

“I continue to think he’s the best chance we have to understand the world we are dealing with in the White House,” said Eisenberg. “He believes in the greatness of America, the importance of a strong economy, creating jobs, and reducing the perilous deficit. He will not take his eye off the ball.”

(my emphasis)

Gov Romney fired up the crowd with remarks on jobs, the economy, job creation, foreign policy and Obama’s failures, and health care. According to the article, one attendee said “Romney appeared ready to “eviscerate Obamacare.”

Next stop on the fundraising march? Onward to Florida – The Villages.

*Remember to PLEDGE to donate to MRC’s Pledge Drive: Show Mitt the Money! If you find yourself short of funds because it’s pay-Uncle-Sam month or whatever reason, try to figure out ways to cut corners or save up to donate whatever you can next month to help Gov. Romney make history. Every dollar counts. The Obama machine doesn’t rest and our man, Mitt, will need all the help we can give.

I hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday season and a happy New Year.
Fleece hat and scarf

2008 is now behind us, but it doesn’t have to be a presidential election year for us to make a difference.  

I have been actively involved in the public debate over the top issues of the day. Recently, I wrote an opinion piece for The New York Times arguing for a restructuring of the auto industry instead of a government bailout. I’ve also come out in favor of a job-creating stimulus plan with pro-growth tax cuts as its centerpiece. As we move forward into the new year, I will continue to speak out to advance our conservative agenda on the national stage.

In addition, with your support, my Free and Strong America PAC will be actively involved in important races this year and next year. There are gubernatorial races in Virginia and New Jersey, and in 2010 36 state houses will be up, as will one-third of the United States Senate and all 435 congressional seats. 

Because the future of our country rests on what we do in these coming months, I would be grateful if you would make a generous contribution to my PAC to help with our efforts.

And for a limited time, to show our thanks for your continued support - and to help keep you warm during these winter months - we will send you our official fleece hat if you contribute at least $60. And for a contribution of at least $100, we’ll send you our fleece hat and scarf set.

Thank you again for your continued dedication to our cause. 

Mitt Romney
Honorary Chairman


Hat and scarf are available for a limited time. Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery. For questions about your order, please email
