From the Dold for Congress campaign- looks like Bob is headed to Israel. I think it's notable that Bob has only been a candidate for a relatively short period and is on his way to Israel; Dan Seals has been campaigning for this position for five years or more, and has only been to Israel once, as far as I know.
Dold Announces Trip to Middle East
Will Focus on the U.S.-Israeli Security and Economic Relationships
Winnetka, IL- Today, 10th District Congressional candidate Robert Dold announced that he is traveling to Israel next week to meet with Israeli government and military officials. Dold will get a first-hand look at several key security areas.
“I look forward to being in Israel at such a critical time in the U.S.-Israel relationship. Our nation’s primary national security threat stems from the tenuous situation in the Middle East. I believe the best way to understand the complex political and cultural dynamics in the country is to evaluate the facts on the ground,” said Dold.
“I strongly believe we must embrace our key ally and partner, Israel, in our mutual fight against a nuclear Iran and the terrorism exported from this region,” Dold continued.
Dold’s visit will also focus on the rapidly expanding business relationships between the United States and Israel, including a private meeting with Saul Singer--the co-author of the acclaimed book “Start-Up Nation,” which analyzes the business and entrepreneurial environment in Israel today.
Dold will be joined on the trip by a group of pro-Israel supporters from the district, and he will be visiting the Armenian Church and Quarter in Jerusalem’s Old City.
