Romney is telling top donors that President Barack Obama won re-election because of the "gifts" he had already provided to blacks, Hispanics and young voters. Romney also cites as a reason for his loss the president's effort to paint Romney as anti-immigrant. In a call Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2012, to those donors, Romney said Obama's campaign focused on giving targeted groups what he called "a big gift" while his campaign had been about, in his words, "big issues for the whole country."

BOSTON (AP) — Mitt Romney is scheduled to attend an August fundraiser for the New Hampshire GOP. It's the first time the 2012 Republican presidential nominee will headline a political fundraiser since his November loss.
The Aug. 6 event will be held in New Hampshire's Lakes Region near Romney's summer home in Wolfeboro.
Romney has spent recent months largely in seclusion. But he has repeatedly hinted at a desire to play a more active role ahead of the 2014 midterm elections.
His brand suffered after losing what was widely considered a winnable election, but Romney maintains a national fundraising network that could help generate millions of dollars for candidates, super PACs and party committees.
New Hampshire GOP chair Jennifer Horn says she's thrilled that Romney has agreed to help the state party.
