Portman, Boehner to attend Adelson event in Vegas

Jessica Wehrman in the Washington Bureau is reporting that Sen. Rob Portman and House Speaker John Boehner will spend this weekend in Las Vegas, Nev., addressing Republican super-donor Sheldon Adelson’s group.

The two are among the confirmed speakers for the spring meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition, which touts its spring meeting as having “the biggest names in the Republican Party.”

They’ll join former President George W. Bush, GOP presidential contenders Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, and 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney at the event.

The coalition describes itself as a “unique bridge between the Jewish community and Republican decision-makers.”
