BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A fundraising committee for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney says his wife, Ann Romney, will headline a reception next week in Meridian. The Idaho Statesman reports Ann Romney’s first campaign appearance in Idaho is scheduled for Sept. 27 at The Club at SpurWing in Meridian, with contributions ranging from $1,000 to attend the reception, to $25,000 to serve as a co-host. The event will start with a VIP photo reception at 5:30 p.m. and the general reception is scheduled for 6 p.m., to be followed by a private dinner scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Organizers are asking attendees to arrive at least 30 minutes early to clear security.
