Mitt Romney in New York City for fundraisers
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Republican Mitt Romney is back in New York City to raise more money for his run for the White House.
Insiders are billing it as Mitt's "multimillion dollar day," and you can bet there will be big name donors and anti-Romney demonstrators on hand.
The latest poll shows Romney now trailing Newt Gingrich by almost double digits in the GOP campaign. However, Romney still drew a crowd at a fundraising breakfast, with a bagel costing $2,500 a head.
The Wall Street Journal/NBC poll shows 40 percent of likely voters nationwide prefer Gingrich to 23 percent for Romney. Ron Paul and the rest of the pack got fewer than 10 percent.
But three mega-bucks fundraisers Wednesday may be just the consolation the former Massachusetts governor needs.
Fresh off his $1.1 million fundraiser with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie in Parsippany Monday night, Romney rubbed shoulders with some big names, from Wall Street bigwigs to Jets owner Woody Johnson.
Then big bankers from JP Morgan Chase will take Romney to lunch at the Waldorf.
Wedesday night, Romney has a private meeting on Park Avenue with prominent CEOs eager for a change in Washington.
