According to the Jerusalem Post, Mitt Romney is planning to visit Israel in late July:
Delegates are set to fly in from the US for the event on July 29, which a Republican source said would be “a small meeting, but a big fund-raiser” as the Tisha Be’av fast ends. Immediately after the fund-raising meeting, Romney will host a conference in Jerusalem, where he will lay out his Middle East policy.
Yesterday Romney actively courted black voters, a block that traditionally votes heavily, heavily Democratic. Now he’s doing the same for Jews. He’s not automatically conceding these ordinarily-Democratic special interest groups to Obama.
Recently I was talking to an elderly Jewish man I’ve known for many years, who’s never voted for any national candidate who was not a Democrat. He’s still planning to cast his vote for Obama this year. But for what it’s worth, he reports being none too happy about it, largely because of Obama’s policy on Israel. The fact that this previously-enthusiastic Obama supporter and lifelong Democratic voter was even for a moment seriously considering voting for a Republican is an indication of how deep the dissatisfaction appears to go.
