US presidential candidates Ted Cruz and Rick Perry have headed for Las Vegas for seeking support of the Jewish donors for their White House bid in the 2016 election.
According to the political analysts, Cruz and Perry will leave no stone unturned to explain their loyalty to the political defense of Israel. They will also woo the donors by showing their opposition against the government policies related to nuclear Iran set by President Barack Obama’s administration.
The reports show that the donor groups are divided over Bush, Cruz, Rubio and Walker, and the buildup of consensus appears difficult in the future.
Republican Jewish Coalition spokesperson Mark McNulty said that the Jewish donors are not only considering their support for Israel but also their effort as well as commitment in the face of the poll.
Among all the candidates, Cruz has been most consistent in backing Israel.
At the Republican Jewish Coalition Spring Leadership Meeting, Republican super-donor Sheldon Adelson will emerge as the most coveted prizes.
Both Cruz and Perry will try to prove their longstanding support for Israel. They will also attempt to underscore their skepticism towards Obama’s nuclear agreements with Iran.
At Saturday’s meeting, both Cruz and Perry will get a golden opportunity to address the potential donors and make a strong pitch for their candidature in their appeal to prominent Jewish donors nationwide.
Indiana Governor Mike Pence, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham and former New York Governor George Pataki will be the other Republicans having presidential aspirations to attend the event.
