Romney hosts retreat of political, business elite

PARK CITY, Utah — Mitt Romney urged a bipartisan gathering of some 200 political and business leaders to set aside partisan bickering and seek solutions to the nation’s most pressing issues.

The private Experts and Enthusiasts conference he hosted Thursday and Friday in Park City featured policy discussions about education, the economy, immigration and foreign policy.

Speakers included three potential Republican presidential candidates for 2016: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky
. Other speakers were Democrats David Axelrod, a longtime adviser to President Barack Obama, and Erskine Bowles, former Clinton White House chief of staff.

Josh Romney told The Salt Lake Tribune that his father wasn’t trying to score political points but was trying to influence the national dialogue. He says he did not hear Obama’s name mentioned once at the retreat.
