Mitt Romney Gets New Jewish Money for Presidential Run
Forward – A small group of Jewish private equity investors, hedge fund managers and real estate developers are playing an outsized role in Republican hopeful Mitt Romney’s fundraising efforts.
Top Jewish donors account for more than 10% of the $36 million raised by Romney’s super PAC.
While Romney has long been the consensus pick of establishment Jewish Republicans, many of the super PAC’s biggest Jewish givers are outside that establishment group. A few have hardly any history of Republican giving, and some gave thousands in individual donations to the Obama campaign in 2008.
