Cold Temporarily Grounds Romney Campaign

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is cancelling his presidential campaign schedule in South Carolina this weekend after getting sick during a rush to raise money before the end of the month.

Romney had cancelled an appearance Tuesday in Bakersfield, California, to recuperate, but now he's going to stay in Utah for the weekend after a stop there on Friday.

Aides say Romney picked up a cold during a busy span that saw him address a Republican Leadership Conference in Michigan last weekend and then head to the West Coast for five days of public and private events.

The quarter closes Monday, and all the presidential candidates have been trying to fill their coffers before they release their fundraising totals the middle of next month.
