Yaid Lapid Throws Tel Aviv Super Bowl Party Hoping to Win Votes to Topple Netanyahu
Bloomberg- Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s protocol-bending invitation to address Congress took Israel’s election campaign deep onto the American political field. This week it reached the Super Bowl.
Yair Lapid, the finance minister Netanyahu fired for “subversion,” threw a Super Bowl party in Tel Aviv, trying to take advantage of a widening rift between Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama to win votes of dual American-Israeli citizens to help topple the Israeli leader. Israeli candidates are also tapping US donors for cash and hiring strategists from battles between Republicans and Democrats.
