Two unlikely speakers are scheduled to address Mitt Romney’s June retreat: former Obama adviser David Axelrod and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.  

The Boston Globe obtained an announcement listing the scheduled speakers, which include New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and others. Romney reportedly wrote in the announcement, “As I indicated in your invitation, I have drawn speakers from government and business to identify key opportunities ahead. And I have made sure to invite presenters from both sides of the aisle.”

The retreat for the former presidential nominee’s donors is scheduled to be held in Park City, Utah and carries a $5,000 price tag, according to Politico.
