The Washington Post's Philip Rucker on the posh "strategizing and "fraternizing" weekend event that will reportedly include appearances by Bobby Jindal, Paul Ryan, and John Thune.
The presumptive nominee and his senior advisers and aides are hosting two days of policy sessions and campaign strategy discussions at a Deer Valley resort for more than 100 top fundraisers and their spouses. Those who raised more than $100,000 are expected to attend.
More than a dozen Republican heavy-hitters are scheduled to join the private retreat as special guests. According to a fundraiser who is attending, guests include some GOP stars believed to be contenders to be Romney’s vice presidential running mate: Rep. Paul Ryan (Wis.), Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Sen. John Thune (S.D.).
.... The retreat, which will be closed entirely to the press, is set to begin Friday with a series of policy question-and-answer sessions with Romney. The donors will be briefed on campaign strategy and spend considerable time planning ways to build on the Romney campaign’s initial general election fundraising success.
