Mitt Romney fundraises in Georgia, plus more to watch for Monday in politics

Mitt Romney will be attending fundraisers in Georgia on Monday, including a $50,000-per-person event that will be held at a private residence. Last week, May fundraising numbers showed that the presumptive Republican presidential nominee had outraised President Barack Obama for the first time.

The president will be at the White House all day, attending meetings and doing interviews with local television anchors from eight states, including the 2012 battleground states of Virginia, Florida, Iowa, Wisconsin, Colorado and Nevada.

Former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, who recently said that Romney needs to make "a personal connection" to Hispanic voters if he hopes to win the presidency, will also be in Georgia on Monday, delivering the keynote address at the Southeast Summit on Immigration in Atlanta.

And then there is this: A week after Romney announced his campaign's Hispanic outreach team, two pro-Obama groups are launching a $4 million television and radio ad blitz in the battleground states of Florida, Colorado and Nevada, where Hispanic voters will play a major role at the ballot box in November.
