SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - Mitt Romney was in Salt Lake City Tuesday for a pair of fundraisers.
The Republican presidential candidate was greeted by a line of Boy Scouts before leaving for two big fundraisers.
One of the Scouts, Matthew Spurrier, told ABC 4,
"Meeting him as a person is completely different...He seemed down to earth, easy to talk to. He's a very people person."
Romney held at a lunch fundraiser at the Grand America Hotel.
Hundreds attended the $1,000 per plate event.
A VIP round table discussion was also held for donors who contributed $25,000.
Earlier, a Romney Rally was held across the valley without the presidential candidate.
There, Utah Senator Orrin Hatch said about Romney,
"You know, we simply have to have him win and I think he will."
The Romney campaign is under-fire for comments from a video that came to light Monday.
The video features Romney making comments stating 47% of voters that have written him off
because of their dependence on government assistance.
