In an unusual decision to endorse a candidate in a primary election, the Republican Jewish Coalition on Monday announced its backing for Julie Fedorchak’s bid for a seat in the House of Representatives.

“Although there are other candidates in the race, there are only two that have a chance to win,” wrote RJC national chairman Norm Coleman and CEO Matt Brooks. “In contrast to her principal opponent, Julie Fedorchak stands firmly against Democrats’ efforts to short-change national defense.”

Fedorchak, a North Dakota Public Service commissioner, has “an outstanding record of delivering results,” they explained.

Furthermore, they added, “Fedorchak has been a steadfast and consistent backer of Israel in its fight against Hamas. Her opponent recently said ‘there’s no place’ for American assistance to Israel in his ideology—before an apparent reversal that leaves his commitment in serious doubt.”
