Democratic presidential candidate launches Hebrew blog, plans visit to Israel in order to court Jewish US vote, Ynet reported.
Republican presidential candidate, Senator John McCain, has already visited Israel and Obama plans to follow suit with a visit to the Jewish state.
Obama also plans to launch a vigorous PR campaign to win Israeli support. Obama's campaign headquarters has recently launched a Hebrew blog, the first ever by a US presidential candidate. The blog, powered by the Tapuz internet website, is available to web surfers in both Hebrew and English and was launched Friday morning.
Obama's campaign managers decided to launch this blog prior to the Philadelphia primaries in an attempt to win over the city's ample Jewish community.
Obama's blog will feature the candidate's speeches and campaign messages, mainly those that pertain to Israel.
