support Barbara Boxer. At least she supports Israel.
When the GOP wants to really be the party they claim to be… let me know.
Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina is coming to Israel for the weekend.
Republican Senate nominee Carly Fiorina has maintained a vigorous pace on the campaign trail this summer, but at the traditional kickoff to the general election she is heading to Israel for what her aides describe as a “personal trip.”
The Labor Day weekend tour is a surprising diversion for the first-time candidate, who weighed in on U.S.-Israeli relations during her primary campaign but has kept a laser-like focus on job losses and rising government spending while sparring with Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer this summer.
Although Fiorina’s campaign manager, Marty Wilson, said the trip is not intended to “drive any publicity” while she’s in the country, it seems destined for maximum exposure.
It will serve to remind conservative evangelicals, a key Republican voter bloc that sympathizes with Israel, of Fiorina’s candidacy, and could also capture the attention of Jewish voters, who usually side with Democrats.
The four-day trip is being arranged and paid for by the Republican Jewish Coalition. It begins a day after Israeli and Palestinian leaders are scheduled to resume direct peace talks in Washington and right after Fiorina’s first debate with Boxer, two events that could steer voters’ attention back to foreign policy.
Wilson dismissed questions about the timing by saying that the former Hewlett-Packard chief executive has long wanted to visit Israel. “They are a vital link to that region of the world; they are a democracy and one that we have to support,” Wilson said. “For Carly to be informed and updated on what’s happening over there is a good thing.”
Fiorina, however, suggested in an interview with an Israeli business publication earlier this month that she had more ambitious designs. Alluding to a possible trip, she said she hoped to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President Shimon Peres and Defense Minister Ehud Barak to “convey directly to the people of Israel that they will not have a stronger friend in the U.S. Senate than me.”
asskissing where she needs to put it for her career.
