Presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman Jr. both plan fundraisers in northern Utah this week.
Huntsman, the former Utah governor, is to hold at Aristo's Greek restaurant Tuesday at 5 p.m., near the University of Utah, aiming to attract younger voters, a campaign spokesman confirmed.
Romney, the former Massachusetts governor and Utah Olympic boss, is planning a pair of fundraisers.
The Logan Herald Journal reports Romney will host events Friday in Logan, at a conference center and a private home.
Romneys visit will be the second to heavily Republican Utah since he officially announced his candidacy for president. He visited Salt Lake City in July for a fundraiser and a rally at a hamburger stand.
Huntsman came to Utah in July, meeting with governors at the National Governor Association's annual conference and stopping by a Harley Davidson dealership in South Salt Lake, before taking a short motorcycle ride.
Polls show Romney carrying a substantial lead in the state over other Republican candidates, including Huntsman.
