Romney Building Huge Fund-Raising Advantage

Mitt Romney plans to enter the 2012 presidential race with a huge fund-raising advantage over any potential rivals. Romney will add this to his loyal following and his already strong name-recognition.
Romney's efforts are detailed in a Wall Street Journal story.
Here's an excerpt:
Mitt Romney has quietly launched a 15-city push to secure financial commitments from big-money “bundlers,” hoping to reveal a fund-raising network that would establish him as the prohibitive frontrunner for the Republican nomination for president.
Mr. Romney and top aides will meet Thursday in New York with nearly 100 donors—many from Wall Street— at the Harvard Club. Attendees are being asked to raise between $25,000 and $50,000 for Mr. Romney within 90 days, in an effort to post large fund-raising totals quickly, one person familiar with events said.
On Tuesday, Mr. Romney met with fund-raisers in downtown Washington, where he also gave his view of the early nominating caucuses and primaries.
