Labor Party Hires Top Democratic Strategist

The Labor party has hired Stanley Greenberg, one of America’s top political strategists, to assist it in campaigning for the 19th Knesset. Reshet Bet reports that Greenberg is to arrive in Israel this week, and will begin meeting with Labor party leaders on Thursday.

Greenberg advised the campaigns of Democratic presidential candidates Bill Clinton, Al Gore, and John Kerry. He is reported to have been involved in promoting Israel’s “social protest” in 2011.
