Mitt Romney arrives in Utah for fundraisers

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - Mitt Romney has arrived in Salt Lake City for a series of fundraisers.
SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - Mitt Romney was in Salt Lake City Tuesday for a pair of fundraisers.

The Republican presidential candidate was greeted by a line of Boy Scouts before leaving for two big fundraisers.

One of the Scouts, Matthew Spurrier, told ABC 4, 

"Meeting him as a person is completely different...He seemed down to earth, easy to talk to. He's a very people person."

Romney held at a lunch fundraiser at the Grand America Hotel.

Hundreds attended the $1,000 per plate event.

A VIP round table discussion was also held for donors who contributed $25,000.

Earlier, a Romney Rally was held across the valley without the presidential candidate.

There, Utah Senator Orrin Hatch said about Romney,

"You know, we simply have to have him win and I think he will."

The Romney campaign is under-fire for comments from a video that came to light Monday.

The video features Romney making comments stating 47% of voters that have written him off because of their dependence on government assistance.
