Washington, D.C. (October 5, 2012) – The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) has released the next in its series of television ads. The new ad features a conversation with Home Depot founder Bernie Marcus.

Bernie Marcus is one of the country’s great success stories, the son of immigrants who became a major leader and philanthropist in the Jewish community, and a supporter of programs and institutions, from medical services and research to the Georgia Aquarium, that enhance the lives of children and families across the United States.

In the RJC ad, Bernie has an important message for the Jewish community and for the country. Bernie shares his concerns for our nation and how frightened he is by what Pres. Obama’s policies mean for America, especially for our children and future generations. In particular, the lack of job creation and rising home foreclosures are limiting the American dream for millions of families.

As someone who has taken Home Depot from one store to one of the largest companies in the world, and as someone who has hired millions of people over many years in business, Bernie is in a unique position to know which policies can bring about economic growth and prosperity and how badly Pres. Obama’s policies are hurting us.

The 60-second ad, part of the RJC’s $6.5 million campaign, is airing on broadcast and cable television in Florida, Ohio, Nevada and Pennsylvania. A longer, 3-minute web version can be seen on the RJC web site and on YouTube.
