'Jewish' Bachmann is costing Romney

Funny, she doesn't look Jewish.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is facing a new challenge: He's having trouble raising money from some Jewish donors who mistakenly believe one of his opponents, Michele Bachmann, is Jewish.

Some Jewish donors are telling fund-raisers for Romney, a Mormon, that while they like him, they'd rather open their wallets for the "Jewish candidate," who they don't realize is actually a Lutheran, The Post has learned.

"It's a real problem," one Romney fund-raiser said. "We're working very hard in the Jewish community because of Obama's Israel problem. This was surprising."

Like other Republicans, Romney is trying to capitalize on President Obama's waning support among Jewish voters, who are upset with his administration's policies toward Israel.

Romney moved to quickly position himself as an alternative to Obama among well-heeled Jewish contributors in places like New York, New Jersey, Florida and California -- a group Obama locked down in 2008.

Romney has been pushing the message that he is a common-sense, business-minded candidate who is a strong supporter of Israel.

The message was among the reasons he was atop the polls until last week, when Texas Gov. Rick Perry bested him in the latest surveys.

Now, with this latest hiccup among Jewish donors, some in Romney's camp have been wondering whether Bachmann and her allies are pushing the "Jewish" rumor to help their own fund-raising, sources said.

She has enjoyed strong popularity among Jewish voters and often talks about her stay on a kibbutz during the summer of 1974, when she was a teenager.

In a speech to the American Israel Political Action Committee last year, Bachmann recalled being guarded by soldiers while working on the kibbutz.

"While we were working, the soldiers were walking around looking for land mines," she said. "I really learned a lot in Israel."

She went on to say, "I am a Christian, but I consider my heritage Jewish, because it is the foundation, the roots of my faith as a Christian."

Bachmann also told an AIPAC gathering earlier this year that she and her family make sure each year to attend at least one Jewish-theme play or movie.

Bachmann spent yesterday campaigning in Miami, part of a four-day swing through Florida.

The Romney campaign had no official comment on the issue.

Bachmann spokesman Doug Sachtleben said he hadn't heard anything about chatter that Bachmann could be Jewish.

He said only that his candidate is doing well in that community because of "her strong support of the nation of Israel," not because some think she's Jewish.

eh, doesn't matter. Romney's got a pretty big war chest and I can't imagine Bachmann is making much of a difference. You've got to be pretty stupid to think she is a jew, so I doubt this is making much of a difference.

Romney can always showcase his Mexican roots to appeal to the Hispanic vote.
