WASHINGTON — About half of the sponsors of a New York fundraiser for Ted Cruz’s presidential candidacy are prominent pro-Israel and Republican Jewish figures, including Eliot Lauer, the longtime attorney for Jonathan Pollard.
The fundraiser for the Republican Texas senator at New York City’s Harvard Club on Monday night took place on the eve of primary elections in the state. The invitation was posted by Rosie Gray, a BuzzFeed reporter, on Twitter, and was reported earlier Monday by Jewish Insider.
