Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is slated to headline a private fundraiser for Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s (R) gubernatorial campaign on Wednesday, the Washington Post reported.

“Ken is grateful to have Governor Romney’s support,” Cuccinelli spokesman Richard Cullen said in an email to the Post. “He’s looking forward to sharing ideas with the governor on how to grow Virginia’s economy and implement his plan to create 58,000 jobs.”

The campaign confirmed Romney would appear at the lunch reception in McLean, Va., but did not disclose the cost of attendance, according to the newspaper.

Cuccinelli faces Terry McAuliffe, a former Democratic National Committee chairman, in the Virginia governor’s race.
