Glenn Beck may pull in some big bucks at his “Restore Courage” rally in Jerusalem next month, but some big names have debunked reports that they will be there. Some of the conservative notables whose names had been linked to the Aug. 24 event will not attend, according to The Hill.

Prime seating at the Davidson Center in Jerusalem sold out for $5,000 a ticket. But camps for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich denied a report in Ynetnews that they would be among the Republicans there.

“We haven’t received an invite and haven’t considered it,” said Joe DeSantis, a spokesman for Gingrich. “So what I can say is that we have not RSVP’d.”

A spokesman close to Beck told Newsmax: "There have been some inaccuracies regarding the specifics of the event. No one [mentioned in The Hill report] has been contacted or asked to appear. Senator Lieberman has expressed his support and that he might attend, schedule-permitting."

Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul said “no” when asked whether he would attend, and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee took to Twitter to announce that he won’t be there.

The rally will be broadcast live, with thousands of Israelis and Americans expected to attend. The event will feature music performances and appearances by local and international celebrities.

Beck has used his Fox News show as a platform to publicize the event during the past few weeks, urging viewers and listeners to make the trip to the Middle East.
