Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, who recently has emerged from the political wilderness, will host his third annual policy summit this summer in Park City, Utah. The private gathering will be an important moment for several potential Republican presidential contenders, providing an opportunity for them to introduce themselves to Romney's network.
On Sunday, The Washington Post obtained a partial list of the more than 200 people scheduled to attend the conference, which will take place June 12-14. It features a mix of politicos, Wall Street titans, former government officials, entrepreneurs, and even sports figures, such as Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who is slated to deliver a talk.
In background conversations, organizers acknowledged that most of the attendees will lean Republican, but said the conference's discussions would not serve a partisan agenda. Instead they described the event as a "leadership retreat" for Romney's circle of friends and associates, including Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson, a Democrat.
Here's a guide to the guest list.
