Republican Jewish Coalition to be a partner on Republican presidential debate

“American strength and American resolve, and our candidates’ vision for America’s role in the world, are more important than ever,” said the RJC’s Norm Coleman.

In what it is referring to as a “historic opportunity,” the Republican Jewish Coalition will “partner” with the Republican National Committee on the presidential debate on Nov. 8 in Miami.

“As the horrific events of the last week have unfolded in Israel, the issue of American foreign policy has taken on an even greater role. American strength and American resolve—and our candidates’ vision for America’s role in the world—are more important than ever,” stated Norm Coleman, RJC’s national chairman and a former U.S. congressman.

The invitation demonstrates “the value and importance that the Republican Party places on the Jewish community and its growing support for the GOP,” as well as the RJC’s impact as an organization, stated Matt Brooks, CEO of the RJC.

“This is an historic opportunity,” he said. “No other Jewish organization has ever co-sponsored a national presidential debate.”

It wasn’t immediately clear what role, if any, the RJC would have during the event. Israel was not mentioned at the previous Republican presidential debate, held on Sept. 27.
