The 2012 race for president comes to Connecticut today.

Mitt Romney, the runner up to John McCain for the GOP nomination two years ago, will be in Greenwich for a mid-morning, weekday rally and fundraiser with Republican gubernatorial nominee Tom Foley.

Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, is one of several likely presidential candidates making the early rounds, offering aid that they hope will turn into chits to be cashed next year.

Despite living next door, he lost here to McCain in the state’s presidential primary.
