Newt Gingrich to hold pro-Israel call with Jewish supporters
As the Republican Jewish Coalition morning session was under way, Newt Gingrich’s campaign sent around an invitation to a conference call during which he’ll discuss U.S.-Israel relations with Jewish supporters.
“Please join current presidential candidate and former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Newt Gingrich for a conference call and question and answer session on American’s relationship with Israel,” the invitation reads.
The call will be held Friday.
This is a point on which Gingrich has been hitting Obama hard, as has much of the GOP field with the exception of Ron Paul (who has been critical from the other direction). Israel as cause celebre among GOP presidential prospects is not new, but it has taken on new intensity this cycle, and it plays well with Iowa’s evangelical voters.
