Former Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne, will host a fundraiser for Mitt Romney this summer, according to The Wall Street Journal.
The fundraiser will take place on July 12 in Cheney's home in Jackson Hole, Wyo., and top contributors will have a chance to dine with Romney and Cheney.
“Jackson Hole is a beautiful summer destination, and this will be a memorable event," a Romney finance team member wrote in an e-mail, according to The Journal. "We hope that you and your friends will be able to join us.”
The two men have not always agreed on policy matters. Cheney has been outspoken about his belief in a large American military presence abroad and the need for harsh interrogation methods. During his first presidential bid in 2008, Romney made a point to say he opposed anything defined as torture. And during a November debate, Romney said he would make a distinction between crimes and acts of war, with separate repercussions for each.
Despite their differing viewpoints, the fundraiser will provide Romney with the opportunity to tie himself to former President George W. Bush and to tap into his network of contributors.
