New York Republican Chairman Ed Cox will hold a fundraiser next month featuring former Utah governor and U.S. ambassador to China Jon Huntsman.

Tickets to the Feb. 27 event range from $50 to $2,000.

Huntsman is a former presidential candidate who sought to stake out a more moderate position in the Republican primary field, but failed to compete against Mitt Romney in a state he needed to do well in, New Hampshire.

The event also features Peter Lau and Shang Chu Tsang, members of the Asian Republican community.

Huntsman is fluent in Mandarin Chinese.
