Romney to raise $10 million in Cali.

(CNN) - Mitt Romney's presidential campaign said Monday it will raise $10 million in a two-day West Coast campaign swing.

Romney held three fundraisers in the Bay Area on Sunday and four around Southern California on Monday.

Earlier this month both Romney and his opponent President Barack Obama released joint fund-raising numbers with their respective party committees. Those figures showed the Republicans bringing in approximately $100 million, compared to the $71 million raised by Obama and the Democrats.

Romney will conclude his campaigning in the states this week on Tuesday, heading overseas Wednesday for a tour that will include London, Israel and Poland.

    The Republican fund raisers are "too rich" for the teabaggers, they're being shut out and shut down. Money talks and B.S. walks.

    Please stay away from California.
    I haven't seen your nasty name on a bumper sticker here anywhere.
    The good people of California have seen what you are and will not give our jack pot of electoral votes to you. Ever.
    Good riddance Willard.

    Must have been all of those liberal types in Hollywood, looking for Romney to break the actor's guild for them.

    He can raise all the money he wants, but money don't buy ordinary votes... it's the little people that has the power when it comes to an election

    Obama 2012: Will you tell your candidate to release his tax returns. He released 23 years to fellow republic
    when he wanted to be vice president but could not release them to the people who will elect him. How stupid.
    Are you still supporting this guy, you will sink with him along with all the republican senators and representatives.

    How are they going to feel about Romney? Here's a sample of his patriotic thinking about serving his own country."My sons are all adults and they've made decisions about their careers and they've chosen not to serve in the military and active duty and I respect their decision in that regard. One of the ways my sons are showing support for our nation is helping me get elected because they think I'd be a great president. This should go over well in Israel , a country with mandatory universal service.

    For a moment, I thought the article meant Cali, Colombia. As Romney has offshore accounts, maybe we need to verify if any checks are from HSBC – lol – Sorry, I tried not to be mean but could not resist.
