Mitt Romney Utah retreat to draw GOP presidential candidates

Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will again host a retreat in Utah for high-profile political figures, business leaders and campaign donors.

Romney’s team sent out invitations Thursday for the fourth Experts and Enthusiasts Summit that will be held June 11-13 at the Deer Valley resort in Park City.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports among confirmed attendees are five current or potential Republican presidential candidates: Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham.

A summit staff member said former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was invited, but was unable to make it because of an earlier scheduled trip to Europe.

Romney launched the summit to maintain his political network after the 2012 presidential election.
