Ron Paul doesn't budge on Israel

Washington (CNN) - GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul held his ground Wednesday against views that he is anti-Israel as he sought to explain his exclusion from a major gathering of conservative Jewish advocates his fellow GOP hopefuls addressed.

Paul was asked in a CNN interview to respond to remarks he made during last month's CNN Republican National Security Debate where he raised concerns about a continued U.S. military presence in Israel, saying, "Why do we have this automatic commitment that we're going to send our kids and our money endlessly to Israel? I think they are quite capable of taking care of themselves."

"I would say that that assessment is incorrect," Cain said on CNN's "Newsroom." "I am very heavily committed to New Hampshire. I have also been to New Hampshire about 14 times since the beginning of the year."
