Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman Jr. to hold fundraisers in Utah

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.
