RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Former Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney is headlining a fundraiser for presumptive Republican senate candidate Ed Gillespie.

Romney is set to host a dinner and reception for Gillespie in New York on March 25.

A former Republican National Committee chairman, Gillespie advised Romney during his failed presidential bid in 2012.

Gillespie is the favorite to win the Republican nomination this summer to try and unseat Democratic Sen. Mark Warner, a former governor who is seeking re-election.

The invite for the fundraiser says that a reception will be held at the Essex House just next to Central Park. A dinner follows at the home of Wall Street tycoon Stephen A. Schwarzman, the CEO and founder of the private equity firm Blackstone.
