Mitt Romney offering perks in his bid for major donors

A race to match Obama fund-raising

WASHINGTON - Mitt Romney is aggressively trying to coax high-dollar donors from the sidelines, offering incentives of special access and recognition to his top fund-raisers, as he plays catch-up to President Obama in the race for money.
