The speeches also will give the candidates an opportunity to respond to President Barack Obama’s sweeping indictment Tuesday of economic inequality in the U.S. — a theme that will shape his re-election campaign next year.

With some polls showing former Newt Gingrich, the former speaker of the House of Representatives, handily overcoming former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Wednesday’s appearances present the candidates a ready-made audience to attack what many of them contend to be Obama’s diminished support for Israel.
