Mitt Romney in Buffalo for fundraiser

Fueled by the political firestorm from Thursday's Supreme Court decision, Mitt Romney's campaign will streak through Buffalo Friday for what's expected to be a $1 million pay day.

Romney went on the attack in the moments following the court's announcement upholding the Affordable Care Act, but it's unclear if he'll expand on those comments during today's brief visit.

Romney is scheduled to appear first at 3:30 p.m. at the Buffalo and Erie County Historical Society. The minimum cost to attend is $2,500.

Romney campaign officials report $4 million in on-line donations have been received since Thursday's Supreme Court decision.

Meanwhile there will be plenty of opposition to Romney's scheduled visit.  A Flash Mob protest is planned to take place during Romney's appearance outside the Historical Society.  The event will feature a pillow fight and some other sports theme skits.  It's estimated that 50 to 100 people could participate.
