McCain holds pro-Israel fundraiser


U.S. Sen. John McCain held a fundraiser in New Jersey organized by a pro-Israel political action committee.

Ben Chouake, who heads the pro-Israel group NORPAC, said more than $1.5 million had been raised for the Republican presidential candidate, the radio station WYNC reported.

About 500 people attended the fundraiser in Teaneck, at which seat prices ranged from $1,000 to $25,000. A posed picture with the candidate cost $10,000.

According to a report in the New Jersey Star-Ledger, McCain devoted much of his 15 minute talk to the recent conflict in Georgia, in which he denounced Russia’s “act of aggression.”
