Gov. Gary Herbert’s campaign is piggybacking a major fundraiser on top of a two-day energy summit, encouraging the sponsors and attendees at the policy event to pony up thousands of dollars to attend a special roundtable to boost the governor’s re-election bid.

The campaign is asking the companies and individuals attending the event to pay $1,500 per person to attend the roundtable on May 24, the opening day of the fourth annual Governor’s Utah Energy Development Summit. They can also purchase a table for four and sponsor the roundtable for $5,000.

It is not the first time Herbert has hitched the fundraiser to the energy summit, which draws representatives from some of the region’s biggest energy producers to the state for the two-day event.
