    Mitt Romney plans to spend the day in West Texas, passing the hat among his supporters as he garners funds for his Republican presidential campaign.

    The presumptive GOP presidential nominee starts his Tuesday evening in Midland with a $10,000-per-couple photo opportunity, followed by a $2,500-per-person reception at Midland's Petroleum Club.

    The former Massachusetts governor will cap his evening with a $50,000-per-person dinner at a private residence in Midland.

    Republicans will gather in Tampa, Fla., in a week to nominate their presidential standard-bearer, who presumably will be Romney.

    Democrats will be in Charlotte, N.C., in the first days of September to nominate President Barack Obama for a second term.
