Obama surrogates courting Jewish vote

Polls show Barack Obama is ahead in Virginia, and the Obama campaign is working to ensure a victory by spending some time courting the Jewish vote with two well-known surrogates.

Former U.S. Ambassador to Israel, and onetime Hillary Clinton supporter, Martin Indyk will be making his first public appearance on behalf of the Democratic nominee tonight at the Weinstein Jewish Community Center in Richmond for a program entitled “A Discussion about Senator Barack Obama, the Middle East and Israel.”

Then, on Tuesday, October 28, a similar program is slated in Virginia Beach with former Middle East negotiator Dennis Ross at the Sandler Center for Performing Arts.
