CRP Recognizes Republican Jewish Coalition at Reagan Library

More than 600 members and supporters of California's Republican Jewish Coalition packed the Air Force One Pavilion at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library Sunday night for the group's biggest annual event yet.

Building an expansive Republican Party in California demands building coalitions in communities where the other team has had an advantage, and that’s precisely what the RJC is doing among California's Jewish voters. Recognizing its tremendous growth, I was pleased to present the RJC with the Chairman's Republican Leadership Award on the occasion of the RJC reaching 10,000 active members in California and providing substantial support to our candidates.

The "Annual Summer Celebration" drew an impressive array of speakers including Insurance Commissioner Steve Poziner, Mississippi Senator Roger Wicker, and radio talk show host Dennis Prager, among others.

In my comments, I noted that elections are about choices, and in November we will not only choose the next President, but also the next Commander in Chief at a time when our servicemen and women are engaged on the battlefield in Iraq, Afghanistan, and less well known places around the world. We can either choose a President who understands the national security situation as John McCain does, or we as a nation can choose a President who would, as Barack Obama promises, sit down with dictators around the world, without preconditions, and confer upon them the additional influence and prestige that comes from simply sitting across the table with the President of the United States. Another reason why electing John McCain is so critical at this time in our nation’s history.

Congratulations to the RJC for a stellar event and continued growth in California!
