Mitt Romney's campaign says Wednesday's fundraiser in Little Rock was the biggest in Arkansas history.
According to Arkansas Democrat Gazette's Charlie Frago, the fundraiser capped $2 million, making it the largest in the history of the Natural State.
Romney spoke for about 20 minutes in the Peabody Grand Ballroom in front of 250 people, according to Frago.

In his opening statement, Romney said, "I appreciate your applause and your money," Frago reports.
