DEL MAR, Calif. - Mitt Romney says he's done raising money in San Diego.

The Republican presidential nominee told donors gathered in the San Diego area that Saturday's fundraiser there is his last one. Romney is expected to launch a more aggressive campaign schedule targeting swing states in the coming weeks. He's spending Saturday at private fundraisers around San Diego and Los Angeles.

Romney's fundraising focus comes as some Republicans say he's not spending enough time with voters in swing states. Election Day is less than seven weeks away. President Barack Obama was campaigning in Wisconsin on Saturday and had fundraisers there as well. Romney told donors that Obama is leading America down a path toward Europe - or even California.

The event cost donors between $1,000 and $25,000 and drew about 650 people.
