Governor Scott Walker is in Israel for a five day trip that will include visits to holy sites and meetings with officials.
The governor’s first day included a visit to the Western Wall, while this morning a photo posted to Twitter showed him meeting with Israeli politician and human rights activist Natan Sharansky to discuss democracy and freedom.
Walker, who is considering a potential 2016 bid for the Republican presidential campaign, is touring Israel as part of an educational trip. It’s being paid for by the Republican Jewish Coalition and his national political group, Our American Revival.
Walker also plans to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other government leaders. He’s also expected to meet with Palestinian and Israeli entrepreneurs, and visit religious sites.
