Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who will officially announce his presidential campaign in New Hampshire on Thursday, is slated to travel to Missouri next week for a fundraiser in St. Louis.
The event, which will feature dinner and a reception, will be held on Thursday, June 9, at the Ritz-Carlton in St Louis, according to an invite to the gathering. Former Sen. Jim Talent, R-Mo., and former Ambassador to Belgium Sam Fox will be among the dinner co-chairs in attendance.
Romney placed third in the 2008 Missouri Republican presidential primary, finishing behind former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who won the Show-Me State contest.
A Romney spokesperson did not immediately respond to an inquiry about what other events Romney would be doing in Missouri.
