Top advisers to John McCain will meet with Jewish supporters on Wednesday.
The McCain-Palin 2008 Jewish Advisory Coalition’s National Jewish Leadership Executive Forum, at the campaign’s Arlington headquarters on Wednesday, will inclue a “national security briefing” from the campaign’s director of foreign policy and national security, Randy Scheunemann, and two other top McCain foreign policy advisers, Kori Schake and Richard Fontaine, according to an invitation obtained by JTA. Attendees at the meeting are also scheduled to hear from Jewish Advisory Coalition national chairman Mark Broxmeyer and comunications deputy director Michael Goldfarb about message and strategy.
Broxmeyer said he expected about 30 people to attend Wednesday’s meeting, a “wide cross section” of supporters and others who have “expressed interest” in the campaign. The campaign’s director of foreign policy and national security, Randy Scheunemann, are among those that will speak at the event and campaign strategy and message will be discussed.
Broxmeyer said Wednesday’s briefing is one of a serious of similar events the campaign has sponsored for Jewish leaders, including one scheduled for Thursday in Philadelphia and another earlier this month at the Republican National Convention and in New York. The campaign also brought on a staffer, Jennifer Sutton, a couple months ago to work specifically on Jewish outreach.
