Potential GOP Presidential Candidates Attending Romney-Hosted Retreat

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Three potential Republican presidential candidates are among the high-profile political and business leaders convening in Park City on Wednesday at a private retreat hosted by former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

The “Experts and Enthusiasts” event starts Wednesday and runs through Saturday at the Deer Valley Resort.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky are among high-profile Republicans scheduled to attend the event.

Some prominent Democrats, including President Barack Obama’s former senior adviser David Axelrod and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, are scheduled to address the conference.

Event attendees are asked to pay $5,000 to help cover the conference costs.

Many of the expected attendees are investors in Solamere Capital, a venture capital firm founded by Romney’s oldest son, Tagg.
