WASHINGTON (CBS) – Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will sit down with a longtime political foe this week.
The Associated Press reports that Romney will interview former Vice President Joe Biden Friday at an invitation-only retreat in Park City, Utah.
A spokeswoman for Biden told the AP he is attending “because he believes in bipartisanship and the importance of keeping good lines of communication open across the aisle.”
Both Biden and Romney spoke out against then-presidential candidate Donald Trump in the 2016 election.
Romney, a former Republican presidential nominee, called Trump “a phony, a fraud,” but was considered a potential Secretary of State nominee after Trump’s win.
Biden launched his own political action committee last week, fueling speculation that he may make another run for the White House in 2020.
Other notable politicians who will be attending Romney’s summit include House Speaker Paul Ryan and Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham, according to the AP.
