RJC Endorses House Education Committee Chair Virginia Foxx (NC-05)

Washington, DC – The Republican Jewish Coalition released the following statement endorsing North Carolina Fifth District Representative Virginia Foxx for reelection. 

RJC National Chairman Senator Norm Coleman and CEO Matt Brooks said:

The RJC is proud to endorse Chairwoman Virginia Foxx, who has solidified her reputation as a stalwart friend of Jewish Americans with her exemplary leadership since Hamas attacked Israel last October 7th.

As Chairwoman of the House Education and Workforce Committee, Foxx was indispensable in bringing necessary attention to the urgent problem of antisemitism on American college campuses. She oversaw the December hearing that brought national attention and accountability to the presidents of Harvard, Penn and MIT. 

In the aftermath of that stunning hearing, Foxx has intensified her committee’s oversight, demanding that these and other universities open the books on how they’ve handled anti-Israel and antisemitic threats to Jewish students. We need her continued leadership in this vital role.

Chairwoman Foxx has also earned the gratitude of pro-Israel advocates by leading the way on measures to demand an end to Palestinian Authority support for terrorism, to block “lawfare” against Israel waged by the International Criminal Court, and to require that the Biden administration be transparent about its dealings with the terrorism-sponsoring Iranian regime.
