Washington D.C. (February 24, 2017) -- Today the Republican Jewish Coalition announced former Senator Norm Coleman as the coalition's next National Chairman. Senator Coleman was elected to replace outgoing Chairman David Flaum, the organization's longest-tenured Chair.
"I could not be more proud of what we at the RJC have been able to accomplish over the past 10 years. Now with Republican control of the White House, the Senate, and the House, I can’t think of better circumstances in which to end my time as Chair," said outgoing RJC Chairman David Flaum. "The RJC works tirelessly and successfully to increase support for the Republican Party in the Jewish community, but I’m most proud of the ever-growing influence our voice has throughout the entire Jewish community. With my tenure coming to an end, there is no better choice than Norm Coleman to build on what we’ve accomplished so far, and I look forward to watching him take the RJC to greater heights."
Senator Coleman praised David Flaum’s spectacular record as RJC Chair.
"I want to personally thank David for all of his hard work in building the RJC organization into what it is today. The best measurement of an organization’s success is the results that are reflected at the ballot box," said RJC Chairman Norm Coleman.
"Beyond a unified Republican government, this past election cycle, the RJC helped double the number of Republican Jewish voices in Congress. We also elected the first Jewish Republican Governor in Missouri. I am humbled to take the reins of this organization and to have the chance to build on the RJC's success. The team our Executive Director, Matt Brooks has assembled is second to none, and I can confidently say this organization will have a more significant role than ever before in helping protect our majority in the House and expanding our majority in the Senate in 2018."
