White House Chief Of Staff In S. Florida For Jewish Outreach

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – President Barack Obama knows that Florida could once again decide the presidential election in 2012. Thursday, he dispatched his chief of staff, Jack Lew, to South Florida for more voter outreach, according to CBS4 news partner the Miami Herald.

Specifically, Lew is in South Florida to participate in the campaign's Jewish community outreach.

"Lew, an observant Jew who is actively involved in his own community, will speak to participants about how to turn out Jewish voters in their respective neighborhoods through the campaign's Jewish Community Leadership Council program," the Obama campaign told the Herald.

Lew was scheduled to talk about President Obama's support for Israel and other domestic issues that are important to him and to the Jewish community.
