Romney Fundraising In Friendly Territory

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is in Florida today, and he's raising money on friendly ground.

He'll be in Jacksonville -- the only major metropolitan area in state that he stole from Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., in the 2008 GOP primary. McCain defeated Romney 36 percent to 31 percent in 2008.

"We look at this area as Romney country," said John Rood, a real estate developer and the former ambassador to the Bahamas under President George W. Bush.

Romney, expected to be the clear fundraising leader when the presidential candidates post their totals in July, will be back in Florida June 15-17 for fundraisers in South Florida, Orlando, Tampa and Sarasota.
