RJC Statement on Boehner Retirement

Washington, D.C. - The Republican Jewish Coalition released the following statement after the announcement by Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) that he will be stepping down at the end of October.

Executive Director Matt Brooks said:

"On behalf of the Republican Jewish Coalition, I would like express our appreciation for the tremendous service of Speaker Boehner. He has been a dedicated public servant. Most importantly he has been an unwavering ally and supporter of Israel and the pro-Israel agenda. This March he proved his strength of leadership by inviting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address Congress regarding this President's misguided Iran deal and then helped lead the effort in the House this fall to oppose the President's Iran agreement. He will be missed by all those Americans who believe that there should be no daylight between the United States and our ally Israel."
