Obama "Jewish Unfriendly" Big Bundlers Look For More Pro-Israel Candidate in Election

March 20, 2012

Susan Crown is just one of many big bundlers supporting a more pro-Israel candidate this year.

So instead of supporting Barack Obama as she did in 2008, she's fundraising for Mitt Romney. The Washington Post reports:

Susan Crown, a philanthropist and member of the billionaire Crown family, has switched sides from supporting Obama in 2008 to backing Romney now, although some of her relatives remain Obama supporters. Crown said in an interview that she was prompted to support Romney after Obama spoke in favor of a return to 1967 borders with land swaps as part of a potential Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement.

“There are a lot of people here who are very disappointed in president Obama,” said Crown, who co-hosted a fundraiser for Romney last year with her husband. “Illinois is very important because it’s Barack Obama’s home state and it has a lot of independents. I’m an independent and I’m working as hard as I can for Mitt. We need a more pro-Israel friendly candidate.”
According to OpenSecrets.org, Crown has donated $2,500 to Romney.
