On the road with Wexler and Crist

Rep. Robert Wexler, D-Boca Raton, will lead a bipartisan delegation to Israel with his paper ballot buddy, Gov. Charlie Crist.

The meetings in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem will focus on strengthening economic, security and military relations between the U.S. and Israel. The group also plans to meet with Israeli officials and business leaders to talk about boosting trade between the state of Israel and Florida.

The agenda includes meetings with Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Knesset Speaker and Acting President of Israel Dalia Itzik.

Others on the trip include a number of Florida business leaders, U.S. Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Miami, Alcee Hastings, D-Miramar, state Sen. Nan Rich, state Reps. Adam Hasner and Dan Gelber and Broward County Commissioner Stacy Ritter.
