(ORLANDO SENTINEL) Could U.S. Rep. Dan Webster, R-Winter Garden, be convinced to support an immigration package similar to what passed the U.S. Senate last week?

One top Democrat seems to think so. A memo sent Friday by U.S. Rep. Steve Israel – a New Yorker who heads the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee – identified Webster as one of 23 “persuadable Republicans” in the U.S. House who Israel thinks could be turned into supporters.
“To achieve our ultimate objective — passage — we’ve identified 23 Republican colleagues in districts where constituents will demand progress on immigration, and where those pressures could persuade our Republican colleagues to support true comprehensive immigration reform,” Israel wrote.
