By the time we get to the Mitt Romney Billionaire Enclave, Rick Santorum will have tossed himself in the 2016 Clown Car, alongside Lindsey Graham and God knows who else.

Mittens is not about to be left in the dust by the likes of Sheldon Adelson and the Kochs, so he's getting ready to convene his own tribunal in Utah.

Romney’s 2015 E2 Summit will take place June 11-13 in Deer Valley, a ski resort east of Salt Lake City, according to an invitation obtained Thursday by The Washington Post.

Confirmed speakers from the likely 2016 Republican field include Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.), New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, and Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.).

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush, long seen as a Romney rival due to tensions between their camps, was invited but will not attend, per a Romney ally.

“The format will be similar to that of the past, with speakers on a range of topics throughout the day and outdoor enthusiast activities each morning and Saturday afternoon,” wrote Spencer Zwick, Romney’s former national finance chairman, in the invitation to Romney’s associates.

What? No Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, or Carly Fiorina?
