Top Romney donors gather for posh retreat in UT


Mitt Romney's top donors are getting a chance to dine this weekend with the presidential candidate and other Republican heavyweights.

Romney is hosting a posh retreat in Park City, Utah where donors will get to attend private meetings and receptions. According to a campaign email, they'll get a chance at seeing GOP stars like Arizona Sen. John McCain, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

Donors who have raised at least $50,000 for Romney's White House run, can sit in on strategy meetings that provide detailed updates of the campaign's progress.

Romney has a financial advantage over President Barack Obama. Newly released figures show Romney and the GOP raised $76 million in May, compared to $60 million from Obama and the Democratic Party.

Other events this weekend include an afternoon tea and small group dinners around Park City.

The weekend ends Sunday with a round of golf for donors who have raised at least $100,000.
