First, there will be a free indoor picnic for Romney supporters in Ames from 1-2:30PM (Gateway Hotel, Conference Center). My own "read" on this event, and the timing of it, is that it is about one year in advance of the all important Ames Straw Poll, where many a presidential campaign is made or broken (5 GOP hopefuls dropped out after the 2000 straw poll, which Bush one). Romney supporters should make their plans now to attend this 2007 event to support him in the Ames Straw Poll!
Second, State GOP chair, Ray Hoffman, is hosting the Chairman's Dinner fundraiser with Romney being his "special guest." That event will be a $50/plate dinner in Cedar Rapids with a 6PM Reception and 7PM Dinner (Crowne Plaza Hotel).
Anyone wanting to attend either of these events should email me and I'll get you RSVP'd (click on my profile above to get my email address).
