Romney camp to dial for dollars Monday
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is wasting no time to raise the necessary campaign funds for a potential presidential run.
On the day after he unveiled the roster of his national finance team, the presidential hopeful announced a day-long calling effort in Boston on Monday, "designed to reach across the country and begin raising the resources necessary for a national campaign effort," according to a statement.
Romney will kick-off the "National Call Day," at 8:45 a.m. ET, making the first call himself. He officially formed a presidential exploratory committee on Wednesday.
