SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- John McCain is getting some help from one of his former rivals for the Republican presidential nomination.
Mitt Romney is making his first campaign swing with the presumed GOP nominee. The two attended a private fundraiser in Salt Lake City.
McCain has struggled to raise campaign money, compared with Democratic rivals Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton. He's on a weeklong western fundraising swing.
Romney is popular in Utah and Colorado, states with large numbers of residents who are members of his Mormon faith.
Neither man appeared especially fond of the other during the campaign. But after dropping out, Romney endorsed McCain and the Arizona senator has praised him as someone who will continue to play a large role in the GOP.
McCain and Romney also plan to travel to Denver today for a second fundraiser.
