Romney raises millions in southern California fundraisers

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney raised millions of dollars at two fundraisers in southern California on Saturday to help fund the final weeks of his race to the White House.

"I'm not even going to be able to go home today. We're just coming to town to see you and keep the campaign going," Romney told a crowd at the Grand Del Mar Resort hotel in Del Mar, California.

Around 650 supporters paid from $1,000 to $25,000 a head to hear Romney's 40-minute speech at the lunch and have their photograph taken with the candidate.

Spencer Zwick, the campaign's national finance chairman, told donors that their money would be spent to build a "massive ground game across the country in those swing states" and buy more television advertising.

The second event, at the Beverly Hilton, raised $6 million.

Around 1,500 tickets were sold ranging from $1,000 to $50,000. Guests were entertained by comedian Dennis Miller and songwriter/producer David Foster.

President Barack Obama spent the day campaigning and fundraising in Wisconsin, a battleground state and the home of Romney's running mate, Representative Paul Ryan.
