Scott Walker’s First Israel Trip to Include Helicopter Tour of Country


scott-walker2Presidential candidate Scott Walker will meet Israeli and Palestinian entrepreneurs and tour strategic and historic sites during his first trip to Israel, the AP reports.

Walker’s committee raising money ahead of his expected White House run, Our American Revival, released new details about the Wisconsin governor’s five-day trip on Thursday.

Walker has no public events planned for the Israel trip that runs from this Shabbos to May 14. Walker has billed it as a “listening tour,” where he plans to meet with government officials and others to learn more about the Middle East.

Our American Revival said Walker plans to make a helicopter tour of “various historical and strategically significant sites,” and that he also expects to visit religious sites.
