Now that Mitt Romney has secured wins in Maryland, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia, he can turn his focus to the next important task on the April calendar: finding his wife, Ann, the perfect birthday gift.
Lucky for former Gov. Romney, he'll have some help in the party planning department. In two weeks, the Romneys will be the guests of honor at a huge birthday party and fundraiser thrown by Melania Trump at Trump Tower. The campaign will bring the Romneys to New York City in time for Ann Romney's 63rd birthday.
Rumor has it some surprises are in store for Ann Romney at the party (I'm told the cake is pretty "Boss"), which has gotten incredible response from campaign supporters. The party will double as a fundraiser for the Romney campaign.
"This birthday party and fundraiser will be the highest-grossing and fastest-selling event to date for the Romney campaign," said executive vice president and special counsel at the Trump Organization, Michael Cohen, predicting a successful event. "Melania looks forward to spending more time with Ann and hosting this special occasion in two weeks."
Donald Trump's support for Romney has been ever-present and hyper-local since his endorsement of the former governor in early February. All told, "the Donald" has recorded more than 30 robocalls for the campaign and participated in more than 50 radio interviews in every state holding primaries over the past two months, according to Cohen.
The campaign has been sure to pay its respects to Trump, giving him special mention at nearly every victory speech on election nights.
"Donald Trump continues to play a crucial role in Gov. Romney's slew of primary wins and march to 1,144 delegates, which will secure the nomination," Cohen said.
With the upcoming birthday bash for Ann Romney, all signs point to the relationship growing stronger as the calendar heads towards the general election.
For those who can't get a ticket to the sold-out party but want one, have no fear. Cohen said Trump has recorded robocalls in upcoming primary states and will be dialing into more local radio shows very soon.
I say "Do it up, girl - Billionaire Style!"
