House Speaker Paul Ryan will travel to Palm Beach this week to meet with his top political donors, several sources told the Miami Herald and McClatchy.

The annual gathering of Ryan's donor network will take place Thursday and Friday. It is slated to be held at the luxury Breakers resort, according to a Republican with knowledge of the event. A spokesman for the Team Ryan organization didn't respond Wednesday to a request for comment.

After House Republicans' healthcare plan imploded last Friday, Ryan told Team Ryan donors in a call Monday that he would continue to try to find a way to undo the Affordable Care Act, The Washington Post reported.

"When we're in Florida, I will lay out the path forward on health care and all the rest of the agenda," Ryan said on the call, according to the Post, which obtained a recording. "I will explain how it all still works, and how we're still moving forward on health care with other ideas and plans. So please make sure that if you can come, you come -- it will be good to look at what can feasibly get done and where things currently stand. But know this: We are not giving up."
