RJC statement on abuse of journalists from Presidential candidates’ supporters

Washington, D.C. -- The Republican Jewish Coalition released the following statement regarding the troubling increase of anti-Semitic invective directed toward journalists covering both the Democratic and Republican candidates for President:

"We abhor any abuse of journalists, commentators and writers whether it be from Sanders, Clinton or Trump supporters. There is no room for any of this in any campaign. Journalists, regardless of their race, religion or ethnicity should be free to do their jobs without suffering abuses, anti-Semitic or otherwise.

"At the RJC, we will be making the case that Jewish values are American values and American values are the Republican values of free markets, peace through strength and unwavering support of Israel. Now more than ever our political process should be geared toward a civil discourse focused on solving our most vexing and intractable problems as a country."
