At the urging of Tammi Rossman Benjamin and Rabbi Abraham Cooper of  the Simon Wiesenthal Center, Gavin Newsom, mayor of San Francisco and  Democratic front-runner for the office of California Lieutenant Governor, has written an outstanding letter opposing the anti-Israel divestment campaign at the  University of California and dissociating himself from the UCSD  “Students for Gavin Newsom,” a group that had endorsed the divestment  resolution being considered by the UC San Diego student senate.
