The event will be held at Las Vegas hotel The Venetian, owned by billionaire friend-to-the-campaign Sheldon Adelson. So far, Adelson has not donated directly to the Romney campaign, but he has funneled $10 million into the Super PAC supporting Romney.
A Romney aide told reporters that the event in Las Vegas is not a fundraiser but a "finance event," and therefore closed to reporters. The aide would not say what the distinction is between the two, declining to say whether the campaign is collecting checks at the event.
If funds happen to be raised — well, then, that's just the donors' prerogative.
