Robin Kelly hits Washington today: At AIPAC conference

| No Comments

WASHINGTON-- Robin Kelly, who is poised to become a member of Congress -- she won the Democratic primary for the seat vacated by former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. and faces only nominal GOP opposition in the April general election -- hits Washington Monday.

She will attend the big American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference dinner on Monday; a fund-raiser for freshmen Democratic House members on Tuesday, and a Congressional Black Caucus lunch on Wednesday.

The AIPAC keynoters on Monday will be Vice President Joe Biden, and via satellite, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Obama visits Israel later this month, the first foreign trip of his second term.
