Romney Raises $1.5M From Jewish Donors

Mitt Romney raised $1.5 million at a dinner for Jewish supporters in Los Angeles.

Romney addressed a $50,000-a-couple dinner in Bel Air on July 23, the Los Angeles Jewish Journal reported.

The dinner capped a day of California fundraising for the presumptive Republican presidential nominee that brought in $10 million.

The Journal quoted donors attending the dinner as saying that Romney felt President Obama was not sufficiently focused on Israel, and that he looked forward to meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when he visits the country next week.
