“We're going to have to rake some of the flower beds,” Hamm said. “We'll have a good showing for him.”

With Republican Rick Santorum shutting down his campaign, Romney has become the presumptive GOP candidate to face President Barack Obama in November. That can provide a boost to fundraising, Cothran said.

“He's our best chance to beat Barack Obama from a Republican standpoint,” she said. “The Republicans say we've got to get behind one person now and it's about that time. It is becoming more and more apparent that he will be the nominee.”

Official invitations will be distributed statewide within the next week. Cothran said about 150 to 200 people are expected to attend the fundraiser.

“For security reasons, for all kinds of reasons, we don't want the Hamms' home overloaded with tons of people and that's one reason the price tag is larger. The space is limited,” she said.
