Former Pres. Bush, Boehner, Romney on schedule for meeting of Republican Jewish Coalition

WASHINGTON (JTA) – Mitt Romney, House Speaker John Boehner and former President George W. Bush will be among the speakers at the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) leadership meeting.

Romney, the Republican presidential nominee in 2012, briefly flirted with a run for the 2016 nomination.

Boehner (R-OH) irked some in Washington with his invitation to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak to Congress next month. The RJC is running an online petition drive supporting Netanyahu’s speech in the face of complaints from Democrats and the White House that Boehner did not consult them before issuing the invitation.

The Bush and Romney talks will be closed to the media.

The Washington Examiner reported that a number of likely presidential candidates will attend, including Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence. The conference will be held April 24-26 in Las Vegas.
