Romney to Bryn Mawr on Tuesday

Fresh off his primary win here last week, Mitt Romney is scheduled to return to the area Tuesday for a private fundraiser hosted at the Bryn Mawr home of real estate developer Mitchell Morgan and his wife, Hilarie.

The invite list reads like a who’s who of the area’s GOP dignitaries. Top Republican fundraiser Robert B. Asher, former Gov. Tom Ridge and Patrick O’Connor, vice chairman of the Cozen O’Connor law firm, all made the list.

The Morgans, who have previously hosted fundraisers for Rick Santorum in 2006 and John McCain during his 2008 presidential bid, have emerged as frequent and generous Republican donors over the last six years. So far this year, they have given at least $51,000 to Republican candidates and causes and serve as members of Romney’s Pennsylvania fundraising committee.

But their lavish, 29,000-square-foot, Bennett Weinstock-decorated property on 20-acres of Main Line real estate may upstage Romney himself.

“Someday I hope all Americans can live like this,” former President George W. Bush was quoted as quipping during a speech on improving standards of living at the Morgans’ 2006 Santorum event.

But Romney could use a few more friends like them if he hope to meet his lofty fundraising goal for the state: $5 million.
