Romney Plans Fundraiser in Israel

The Romney campaign has invited donors to a fundraiser in Israel.

The Jerusalem Post reported Wednesday that the fundraiser would take place on July 29 in Jerusalem and would cost $60,000 a plate.

A donor who has been invited confirmed the fundraiser to JTA, although the Romney campaign formally had no comment. The donor was not aware of the $60,000 minimum.

The July 29 date is the first indication of when Romney would be in Israel. His plan to visit was announced earlier this month.
