VIDEO: Hillary Bumps Into Hatzalah Founder
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton promised to support Israel during a random encounter in a selfie video with Eli Beer, Founder of United Hatzalah of Israel.
Beer, who was on the same plane with Clinton Monday morning, introduced his family to whom he described as “the next president of the United States” as she was sitting in first row on business class before takeoff from LaGuardia Airport.
“You’re a big supporter of Israel, you know that?” Beer told the presidential hopeful as she nodded her head in agreement. “[You should] continue.”
“I will,” Hillary replied.
Hillary was en route to Chicago for three fundraisers, including a morning reception at the home of Invenergy LLC CEO Michael and Tanya Polsky.
Polsky hosted several fundraisers for President Barack Obama.
In the afternoon, Eric Janssen will host a $2,700-per-head fundraiser. Hosts of the event include Democratic donor Fred Eychaner and Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanual, who’s hosting the presidential hopeful for lunch, recently endorsed Clinton along with 134 mayors from across the country. “I’ve had the honor of working with Hillary as a First Lady, Senator and Secretary of State, and in each role she has shown the leadership, values and concrete plans that make her the best choice to be our next president,” Emanuel said in a statement sent out by the Hillary campaign on Friday. “I’m with Hillary and will be working tirelessly over the next year to make sure she is given the opportunity to lead this great country.”
