NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is scheduled to attend a private fundraiser in Franklin on Tuesday.

An invitation obtained by The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/KwmrSw) says the event will be at the home of Lee Ann and Orrin Ingram.

Guests must give or raise $10,000 to attend a reception with the former Massachusetts governor and have their pictures made with him. Others can attend a "general reception and program" for $2,500 per person.

This will be at least the third visit Romney has made to Tennessee. He came to the Nashville area for fundraisers in November and March.

Gov. Bill Haslam, Romney's state campaign chairman, is expected to attend the fundraiser, as well as Senate Speaker Ron Ramsey of Blountville and House Speaker Beth Harwell of Nashville.
