PARK CITY, Utah – Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney started a three-day retreat in Park City Monday with a multitude of guests.

The event is being held at the Stein Eriksen Lodge in Silver Lake, and it will feature speakers like Republican New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin. About 200 people are expected to attend, which is about 300 less than attended last year's retreat.

Kirk Jowers, director of Hinckley Institute of Politics, said he thinks those present will mainly focus on economic issues and the federal deficit. He said the discussions may have life beyond the event.

"It’s one of those great gatherings where you have so many leaders in a number of areas that there really is a chance to find solutions and for them to take that into their respective spheres of influence,” he said.
