Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is spending much of this week in noncompetitive states to raise money for the campaign's final push.
Romney is traveling this week in Alabama, South Carolina, Massachusetts and New York. He plans visits next week to Texas, Louisiana and New Mexico.
None is seriously contested in the presidential race.
Fundraising remains a top Romney priority even with the election less than 12 weeks away and President Barack Obama making extended visits to toss-up states such as Iowa and Ohio.
Obama attends numerous fundraisers of his own. And Romney has spent significant time at public campaign events in swing states.
Romney and his allies have raised more money than the Obama camp has in recent months. But the biggest fundraiser is not guaranteed to win elections.
