With his long-awaited speech on faith in America scarcely hours behind him, Mitt Romney's campaign was looking ahead to the general election discussing plans to begin raising money that can only be used if Romney becomes the GOP nominee for president.
Unlike most major presidential candidates, Romney has not accepted money for use during the general election. Republicans and Democrats who have taken money earmarked for the general election cannot spend it unless they earn their respective party's nominations.
A massive Romney fund-raiser for the general election is now being planned for the day after the New Hampshire primary. It will be modeled after a similar "call day" event last January that raised millions of dollars with the help of Romney's high-powered political and business connections.
Supporters can give a candidate up to $2,300 for the primary election and the same amount for the general election under federal election law.
