The party that was planned but never happened!

Private jets were streaming into Boston’s Logan International Airport Tuesday afternoon, officials said, as Mitt Romney’s well-heeled supporters arrived for his post-election party in the Seaport District.

Edward Freni, director of aviation for Logan, said an unusually large number of Gulfstream corporate jets were looking to park at the airport by late afternoon on election day. Logan had accommodated 80 of them by 4:30 p.m., roughly double the 40 to 50 it sees on a typical day, he said.

....

The Romney campaign was planning a special reception Tuesday night at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center for the Republican candidate’s biggest financial backers. These members of Romney’s national finance committee are invited to gather in the “Green Room” before the speaking portion of the rally in the grand ballroom, according to a person invited to the event.

Romney’s invite-only election night celebration is expected to draw about 5,000 attendees.
