Ted Cruz travels to Las Vegas to woo Republican Jewish donors
Ted Cruz launched his presidential campaign last month and is all set to travel to Las Vegas to speak to the Republican Jewish donors that he is the most electable, pro-Israel Republican in a crowd of candidates making the exact same pitch.
Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, former New York Gov. George Pataki and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence are other Republicans with presidential aspirations likely to attend the Republican Jewish Coalition spring meeting. They all have been at the bottom of the most polls.
Some of the top-ranking Republicans who will not mark their presence in the meeting are former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.
As a result, Cruz has a brilliant opportunity to make a point to some of the most prominent Republican donors, like casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, that he is the best pro-Israel Republican to go for the presidential run.
According to a half-dozen RJC members, the coalition is deeply split, with large groups of donors expressing their interest in Cruz, Bush, Walker and Rubi. Consensus does not appear there. “I don't think at this time there is any larger faction than any other. I'll commit to four of five of them financially because I love them all -- and we'll see who comes out on top”, said Ron Bloom, a California GOP donor on the group's board who is undecided.
Four dozen board members will be present this weekend, including some of the biggest names in the pro-Israel donor network. About 700 total people are expected to be in attendance during the spring meeting.
Sources have reported that Walker is sending to the meeting his chief foreign policy aide, Mike Gallagher, as an ambassador.
