Former Minnesota Sen. Norm Coleman has signed on with Mitt Romney's presidential campaign as a "special adviser for policy," and announced his support for Romney in a Wednesday statement emphasizing the former governor's support for Israel.

"Whether it is turning around our struggling economy or maintaining our relationships with international allies, the next President must have the experience and leadership to keep America strong at home and abroad," Coleman said. "As a strong supporter of Israel, I am also confident that he is the best candidate to restore America’s relationship with Israel."
