Romney to mingle with tech execs on Calif. fundraising swing

Whitman co-chaired a fundraiser for Romney in Hillsborough, Calif., back in May. Critics pounced on the event because it happened shortly after HP announced plans to lay off 25,000 workers.

Romney’s trip comes a day before Obama travels to Northern California for his own fundraising swing. The president will travel to Oakland and also participate in a tech-related campaign discussion in the East Bay, according to the San Jose Mercury News.
