Senator Cowan on four-day visit to Middle East

WASHINGTON — US Senator Mo Cowan on Tuesday will begin a four-day swing through Israel, Jordan, and Turkey to meet with foreign leaders, assess US aid programs, and see first-hand the refugee crisis sparked by Syria’s civil war, according to his office.

The trip will be his first overseas since being appointed in January to temporarily fill the seat vacated by John F. Kerry. With the special election for a permanent replacement looming, it will also likely be his only one.
