WASHINGTON (CNN) — Mitt Romney is headlining a fundraiser for Ken Cuccinelli Wednesday in McLean, Virginia.

Cuccinelli, the Commonwealth’s attorney general, is the Republican nominee in this November’s Virginia gubernatorial election.

“Ken is grateful to have Governor Romney’s support,” Richard T. Cullen, communications director for the Cuccinelli campaign, said in a statement to CNN. “He’s looking forward to sharing ideas with the governor on how to grow Virginia’s economy and implement his plan to create 58,000 jobs.”

The campaign did not release details of how much money was expected to be raised or who would attend the event.

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee headlined a New Hampshire Republican Party dinner and fundraiser last month. It was the first time Romney attended a political fundraiser since he lost last November’s presidential election.
