WASHINGTON (AP) -- Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is preparing to open some fundraisers to the media.
Two Romney campaign officials with direct knowledge of the decision told The Associated Press that the shift from closed to open fundraisers could happen as soon as next week. The officials were granted anonymity to speak freely about internal discussions.
The decision comes less than 10 days after reporters outside a Palm Beach, Fla., fundraiser overheard Romney sharing previously undisclosed details about his tax plan. Romney has been facing intensifying pressure for transparency in his role as the GOP's presumptive candidate against President Barack Obama.
One official says Romney will open larger events in which he delivers remarks. That's the same policy Obama has followed since becoming his party's presumptive nominee in June of 2008.
