AIPAC says Ted Cruz to speak at confab

AIPAC announces on Twitter that Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz will speak at their annual policy conference next week.

The pro-Israel lobby has already booked Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton to speak at the Washington event.

The Texas senator, running a distant second behind Trump, is known for taking positions seen by many as in line with Israel’s right-wing government.

Earlier in the day, Trump announced he would be skipping the next Republican debate to speak at AIPAC, leaving just Cruz and Ohio Governor John Kasich on the Fox stage. It is not known if Cruz’s AIPAC plans will bump up against the debate.

AIPAC says it’s extended invitations to all candidates.
