On Sunday, September 23, members of the co-host planning committee and their guests attended a small reception with Gov. Mitt Romney's older brother, Scott.
At the reception Scott Romney talked about the campaign's plans for the last weeks of the election, battleground states, and strategies for the debates.
During the question and answer, club member Joe Visconti asked Scott to tell us about his younger brother. After a few cute stories about their childhood, Mitt and Ann, and the family, Scott said, "He's my hero."
There were about 80 people in attendance, including the Chases who have graciously offered their home for this weekend's fundraiser.
Twenty of the guests were members of the West Hartford Republican Women's Club, including: Amy DeGraff, president; Erin Matino, vice president; Marianne Zinzarella, treasurer; and Krystal McCarthy, board member.
Club members John Henry Decker, candidate for US Congress in the 1st district and his wife Melinda were also in attendance.
Thursday is the last day to sign up to join Congressman Paul Ryan at the fundraiser on Sunday, Sept. 30, in West Hartford - for inquiries please email Amy DeGraff at WHRWC@comcast.net.
