Conservative Jewish group announces FL ad-buy bashing Obama over Israel's capital

The conservative Emergency Committee for Israel says it's launching a TV ad targeting Florida Jewish voters by highlighting the Obama administration for failing to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel. Romney did just that while visiting Israel last weekend. While Israeli leaders consider it their capital, it's a contentious issue because so many Palestinians live there.

The ad will air in the Miami, Palm Beach, and Orlando markets.

If the polls, studies, prior elections and interviews with Florida Jewish voters are any indication, this probably won't have much of an affect. But this is what campaigns are for: Changing minds.
