Less than 24 hours after winning the Texas Primary and clinching enough votes to be the GOP presidential nominee, Mitt Romney visited the Central Valley.
Romney is attending a fundraiser luncheon at the home of John Harris, the owner of Harris Ranch.
The home near Sanger in Fresno County had lots of security with California Highway Patrol officers, K-9 units and the Secret Service.
Those who attended paid $50,000 per couple to be at the luncheon.
According to federal campaign disclosure reports, Romney is favored in the Central Valley over President Obama and as of March, has raised more than $280,000 from Valley residents.
This is the Republican's second visit and those attending the luncheon say they are thrilled he's here making an effort with Valley residents. Lunch guest Betty Anderson said, "I'm excited, I'm glad he came and he's interested in us and I hope he does good things for us and keeps our Valley like it is and does a good job for the country and I'm sure he will."
