Mitt Romney's Modesty

May 12, 2011

Later this month, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney's (R) holding a fundraising phone-a-thon with supporters in Las Vegas. Romney insiders told the Center for Public Integrity he hopes to raise between $2 million and $3 million.

He's far too modest.

The phone bank fundraiser is the same way Romney kicked off his 2008 campaign. That year, Romney aimed to raise $1 million during the day-long event in Boston. He sent what Washington Post writer Chris Cillizza called a "powerful message" by raising $6.5 million in contributions and pledges instead.

So, should we just multiply by six and expect a $12 million to $18 million haul?

Romney's team didn't want to comment on fundraising expectations.
