Reason why Romney’s trip to Israel is interesting


Here’s one reason why Mitt Romney’s recently announced trip to Israel this summer is interesting — the guy is otherwise barely talking about foreign policy, focusing instead on the economy.

One more sign of just how much Romney and the Republicans see Israel as a potential wedge issue — but is it about Jewish voters, Jewish donors and/or conservative Christians?

UPDATE: Ron Kampeas tackles the question.
