RJC Congratulates New House GOP Leaders

Washington, D.C. (June 19, 2014) -- The Republican Jewish Coalition congratulates the new House Republican leaders, House Majority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy and House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise.

RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks said:

We congratulate Rep. McCarthy and Rep. Scalise on their new leadership roles in the House Republican caucus. They join Speaker of the House John Boehner in the important tasks of unifying House Republicans and guiding legislation through the House.

We are confident that the GOP leadership team in the House will continue to move forward on important issues, including showing support for Israel in the face of the growing threat of a nuclear Iran. House Republicans have taken the lead in proposing and supporting measures to strengthen the sanctions against Iran. They have also led efforts to fully fund U.S. aid to Israel, including the military aid that Israel spends here in the U.S.

The RJC has a unique role as the national grassroots organizations of Jewish Republicans, working with the Jewish community and Republican elected officials on the issues that matter to Jewish Republicans. We look forward to continued good relations with the House Republican leadership in the months ahead.
