(CNN) - Former first lady Laura Bush will host a fund-raiser for the presidential campaign of Mitt Romney at her home next week which will be attended by the candidate's wife, Ann Romney, according to two people familiar with the event.
The women's luncheon will be held on Tuesday, a source familiar with the fund-raiser said.

Ann Romney's spokeswoman, Sarah Haley, confirmed, separate from the first source, that the candidate's wife will attend the event.
While the former first lady will be in attendance, former President George W. Bush will not attend the event.
While the couple has previously endorsed Mitt Romney, the former president has stayed away from partisan events since leaving office.
The Bushes did not attend this year's Republican Convention in Tampa.
Since the convention Mrs. Romney has increasingly done solo events on behalf of her husband's campaign. She is seen as a popular and effective surrogate. Her speech to the Tampa convention was widely praised by activists in both parties as helping to show a more personal side of her husband by giving voters a different perspective on him.

that blond bimbo actually attending something, that's a lot of work
Congrats Robme and Ms Dubyah! Keep pushin the lies fomenting against the President and this country against those who are in harms way. Do this as the President and Sec. of State eulogize those brave americans who died in Libya. What a great campaign you people are running.
This is all sarcasm intended for the knuckle dragging hoard called the GOP Tea-a-Tards
the repugs right now look like RATS jumping from a bucket of hot water.( DESPERATION)
They both have the same snotty look at all times, like they are better than other people. It's sad that in 2012, people are still judged by their skin color.
Why isn't GW Bush out there fundraising? I can only think of two reasons: The GOP doesn't want to remind people that GW Bush's policies were all failures and that Mittens is proposing the EXACT SAME POLICIES.
Or, GW fell off the wagon ...
@JustShowMe – You are a complete imbesile. Words cannot describe how stupid, blind and ignorant you are. You, sir, are what is wrong with this country.
GOP/Teatrolls: "It doesn't matter what we say as long as it gets us what we want."
Fire up the car elevator and break out the BATmobile, Ann Romney has got work to do for the rich.

Has Mitt Romney shown his? Or even plan on showing his promised 2011 taxes? It IS his turn, you know.
I actually like Laura, too bad she was married to such a lunkhead!
@ Southern Hottie
Why the college transcripts? I don't understand?
Well isn't that special.
June cleaver having lunch with Harriet Nelson. Were not in the 50s anymore America. Obama Biden 2012!
Get you logic straight Romney.
I don't care if you think Obama is lower than a dog,
what does that have to do with who you are ?
Only idiots think that putting someone else down
Thank God your not the president.
If this doesn't mark a scary resemblance oh wait...all of Romnys advisors are the same as W. Bush....and there are still idiots voting republican! I used to be a repub but thank GOD I studied politics and have been delivered from evil!
I like Laura Bush but if I were her I would have told Georgie Boy "don't hide your campaign donations under my skirt"
