Credit: RJC.(JNS.org) In its final advertisement before the Nov. 6 election including the testimony of Jews who regret previously supporting President Barack Obama, the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) features Jerusalem resident Bryna Franklin, former chair of Democrats Abroad Israel, who says “that special relationship does not exist” anymore between the U.S. and Israel.

“The relationship changed almost immediately when President Obama became elected,” Franklin says on the ad running in the swing states of Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Nevada. “He went to Egypt, he didn’t come to Israel.”

Franklin, 80, “has been an active and committed Democrat her whole life,” RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks noted in a statement.

“But this year, like many other Jewish Democrats, she is calling on her fellow Jews across America to support Mitt Romney,” Brooks said.
