National Jewish Democratic Council responds to RJC ad campaign
NJDC Responds to Republican Jewish Coalition Joe Lieberman Ad Campaign
August 9, 2006
Washington, DC - National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) Executive Director Ira Forman issued the following statement in response to the Republican Jewish Coalition's (RJC) announced ad campaign suggesting that Senator Joe Lieberman's loss in the Connecticut Senate primary election is an indication that Democrats are soft on Israel.
"I'm absolutely astonished by the RJC ad campaign. American Jews need to know that the Republican Jewish Coalition is no friend of Joe Lieberman, and it certainly isn't an advocate for the issues of importance to the mainstream of the Jewish community.
"For years, the RJC has criticized Joe Lieberman. Now they want to use his good name for their own political purposes. These guys have no shame.
