Mitt Romney to visit Shreveport just before primaries

Massachusetts Governor and GOP Presidential Nominee Candidate Mitt Romney will make a visit to Shreveport on March 23, one day before the Louisiana Presidential Primary.

The event is being held by Shreveport Businessman Paul Dickson and Louisiana's 5th District U.S. Representative Rodney Alexander at The Petroleum Club in downtown Shreveport.

The invitation only reception is $1,000 per person. A VIP photo reception costs $2,500 per person.

Romney will begin a sweep of the southern states ahead of their primaries, where he has trailed either Rick Santorum or Newt Gingrich by as many as 20 points.
