Romney for President Exploratory Committee Raises $10.25 Million for Nevada Call Day
LAS VEGAS – The Romney for President Exploratory Committee today announced that it raised $10.25 million in connection with today’s call day fundraiser in Nevada. 
Approximately 800 participants from across the nation gathered inside the Las Vegas Convention Center in a space the size of two football fields. The event began at 9am ET and concluded at 5pm ET.
“We are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support for Governor Romney’s campaign,” said Finance Chair Spencer Zwick. “The results are a strong indication of the national enthusiasm for Governor Romney and his pro-jobs platform. As today’s event makes clear, Governor Romney will have the resources to be competitive and to spread his jobs and economy message. We would like to thank all of the friends, volunteers and supporters who helped make this event a success.”

Ed. Note.  The Los Angeles Times reported on June 30, 2011 that "the amount actually represented pledges gathered earlier and tallied that day, not just funds actually taken in by the campaign."
