The US Republican Jewish Coalition is sending Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, a potential 2012 presidential candidate, to Israel for five days.

The Washington-based group said Tuesday it is sponsoring the Feb. 5-9 trip for Barbour and his wife, Marsha.

Barbour will meet with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and other leaders.

The coalition said on its website that  it also paid for Barbour to travel to Israel in 1994, when he was chairman of the Republican National Committee.
