WASHINGTON — Donald Trump and John Kasich are skipping a Republican Jewish Coalition forum for presidential candidates.
RJC officials told JTA on Monday that Trump, the real estate magnate and front-runner for the Republican presidential nod, and Kasich, the Ohio governor who is running third, will not be able to attend the event the group’s leadership meeting this weekend in Las Vegas.
Both had conflicts, an official said.
That leaves Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who is running second behind Trump, as the only candidate to address the forum.
