Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney will be in Baton Rouge on Monday to lunch with supporters.
Romney, the likely Republican nominee, will make a swing through Louisiana less than two weeks ahead of Democratic President Barack Obama’s scheduled visit to New Orleans.
Obama is scheduled to speak at the National Urban League’s annual conference on July 25. Romney’s audience will be more select.
State Republican Party Executive Director Jason Doré said Wednesday that Romney will have lunch at the City Club in downtown Baton Rouge with supporters who contributed $50,000 to his presidential campaign.
Doré characterized the gathering as a small luncheon.
Gov. Bobby Jindal’s spokeswoman Shannon Bates said Jindal will attend the luncheon.
Last week, Jindal hit the campaign trail for Romney, trailing Obama’s bus in Ohio.
Jindal’s name often is tossed around as a possible running mate for Romney.
Earlier this year, Romney visited Louisiana ahead of the state’s presidential preference primary.
He went to a Metairie mall and held a fundraiser in Shreveport.
