Las reuniones con David Cameron, Tony Blair, Nick Clegg, Ed Miliband y William Hague están bien, pero lo más importante a efectos prácticos para Romney es la recaudación de fondos que celebrará esta noche con ejecutivos estadounidenses afincados en Londres y hombres de negocios estadounidenses que están en la ciudad con motivo de las Olimpiadas.

The Telegraph:

A group of senior US financiers will tonight host a $25,000-a-plate fundraising dinner in London for US Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

Eric Varvel, the chief executive of Credit Suisse’ investment bank, and Woody Johnson, owner of the New York Jets American football team are among the guests at the event, according to Financial News.
The event is being held to coincide with the opening of the Olympic Games and will take place at an undisclosed location in London.
Other attendees include Dwight Poler, a senior figure in the European business of Bain Capital, which Mr Romney co-founded.
Karl Peterson, head of TPG Capital Europe, will also be there. He donated $2,500 to Romney’s campaign in June last year, according to Federal Election Commission records.
Executives at Barclays have reportedly donated more than $1m (£645,000) to to US Republican presidential candidate Mr Romney's election campaign. They are set to hand over more this evening.
