Jewish Democrats strongly criticized on Monday a Republican presidential candidate's choice of a museum honoring auto pioneer Henry Ford to launch officially his presidential campaign. The critics were angered by Ford's history of anti-Semitism. Mitt Romney, former governor of Massachusetts, who has scheduled the formal announcement of his candidacy on Tuesday from the Henry Ford Museum in Michigan, was taken to task by the National Jewish Democratic Council. The council "is deeply troubled by Governor Romney's choice of locations to announce his presidential campaign," executive director Ira Forman said in a statement. "Romney has been traveling the country talking about inclusiveness and understanding of people from all walks of life," Forman said. "Yet he chooses to kick (off) his presidential campaign on the former estate of a well-known and outspoken anti-Semite and xenophobe."
