RJC PAC Makes Rare GOP Primary Endorsement

Endorses Dr. John Cowan in GA-14 Race

Washington, DC – The RJC PAC announced that it is endorsing and supporting Dr. John Cowan in his primary run-off contest against Marjorie Taylor Greene in Georgia's 14th congressional district. RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks released the following statement:

The Republican Jewish Coalition seldom gets involved in Republican primaries, but today we are making a rare exception to announce our strong support for Dr. Cowan. The importance of the outcome of this run-off is too great for us to stay on the sidelines.

Dr. Cowan's opponent, Marjorie Taylor Greene, would take our party in the wrong direction. Greene came to national attention for all the wrong reasons: repeatedly using offensive language in long online video diatribes, promoting bizarre political conspiracy theories, and refusing to admit a mistake after posing for photos smiling side by side with a long-time white supremacist leader. 

By contrast, Dr. Cowan, a respected neurosurgeon, has demonstrated the right principles: denouncing all types of bigotry and violent extremism, emphasizing his strong roots in his district, and speaking out strongly for mainstream conservative values, including support for President Trump and a strong pro-Israel stance. 

Throughout its history, the RJC has consistently stood up and spoken out clearly against bigotry and extremism in our party, the most recent example being our support for the primary defeat last month of Congressman Steve King.

We are honored to stand with Dr. Cowan in his effort to put the people of Georgia's 14th district first, and give them representation in Congress that they can be proud of.
