Romney makes pitch to attend $5K summit

Politico has reported that Mitt Romney has sent an email to bundlers and large donors, asking them to participate in a summit for his son Tagg's investment firm, Solamere Capital, which the former Republican presidential nominee recently joined.

NBC News has learned the Solamere conference will take place from June 4-8 at Deer Valley's Stein Eriksen Lodge in Park City, Utah. But NBC has not confirmed Romney's participation.

Politico says that the cost to attend to attend the summit is $5,000. “In the span of four days, we will have a chance to hear from political, business and other thought leaders and spend time together enjoying a variety of outdoor activities,” Romney said in the email. “We are calling the event, Experts and Enthusiasts. As we only have capacity for a small group of people to be part of this gathering, invitations will be kept to a limited group of industry and thought leaders.”

Sources had told NBC that when Romney first accepted the job with Solamere -- also run by his campaign's top finance official Spencer Zwick -- he only wanted to be involved with advising on business transactions, not fundraising.
