Romney to meet with Jewish donors
Mitt Romney is meeting with about 30 major Jewish donors to his presidential campaign as part of a “constituents day.”
Romney, the former Massachusetts governor and all-but-certain Republican nominee for president, will meet for about an hour with the donors in Boston on Thursday.
A donor who was invited told JTA that the purpose of the meeting would be an exchange of views.
There would be other meetings the same day with other constituent groups, the donor said, confirming reports of the meeting from a number of Jewish community officials.
Romney and President Obama have intensified outreach to Jewish voters and supporters in this presidential election year.
On Monday, the White House hosted some 70 Jewish leaders in a bid to reassure them that the Obama administration was determined to keep Iran from acquiring a nuclear bomb.
