O'Malley headed to Israel next month

March 15, 2013|By Erin Cox | The Baltimore Sun

Gov. Martin O'Malley will travel to Israel in April for an economic development mission that was canceled during last fall's violence in the Gaza Strip.

The itinerary has not been finalized, an aide said, but the trip is meant to replace the eight-day visit planned for November but canceled as Israel and Hamas forces exchanged rocket fire.

O'Malley's original journey was meant to include an entourage of business executives that with him would visit Israel, Jordan and Ramallah. 

The April trip will be O'Malley's second to Israel since taking office. The country is frequently a stop for politicians considering a White House bid.
