SALT LAKE CITY -- Mitt Romney is returning to Utah for a fundraiser.

Romney spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom told the Salt Lake Tribune the event will raise money so Romney can campaign for Republican candidates in the 2010 election.

The former 2002 Olympic boss and presidential candidate will hold a $1,000-a-plate dinner at Little America Hotel on Tuesday, preceded by a VIP reception for those who pay $5,000. The events are open to donors only.

The money raised will go to Romney's Free and Strong America Political Action Committee. The Tribune reports the PAC has raised about $4.6 million since it began in April 2008 and has spent nearly $500,000 supporting GOP candidates around the country.

During his presidential bid, Romney raised $5.5 million from Utahns in his campaign account alone. He isn't commenting on another possible run for president.
