The Brody File just got an exclusive tip about an important trip Sen. Rand Paul is planning, to the Middle East.
A top advisor to Rand Paul tells us that the Senator will travel to Israel and Jordan for the first time to meet with leaders on all sides of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. The trip will be privately funded, and The Brody File has learned that Senator Paul will be accompanied by Christian and Jewish leaders.
They will tour all of the major historical and cultural sites.
Meetings with Benjamin Netanyahu, Ehud Barak, Jordan's King Abdullah, Mahmoud Abbas and others have been requested.
The trip is being organized by prominent evangelical activist David Lane. It was Lane who approached Paul about touring Israel.
Rand Paul is contemplating running for president in 2016. He's taken criticism from some who think his desire to cut foreign aid is somehow an anti-Israel position. Evangelicals are the most ardent supporters of Israel and are extremely important in the GOP Primary process. Paul's visit will be an important one that could pay dividends if he decides to run for The White House in 2016.
