The Republicans Want to Hear Your Story

The Republican Jewish Coalition is looking for a few good Democrats-turned-GOPers to tell their stories. Here’s the e-mail that the group sent out …

The RJC is challenging Jewish Democrats to re-examine today’s Democratic Party and see if it’s right for them. Many of them are finding that they are no longer comfortable with the party of Jimmy Carter, Howard Dean, and Al Sharpton. Many are moving to the Republican Party, with their votes, their voter registration, and their activism.

We know it happens every day, but we want to hear it from YOU.

Are you a former Jewish Democrat who made the switch to the GOP?

Why did you switch? What attracted you to Republican ideas or candidates? What brought you to the point of changing your political affiliation – and how has the change affected you? Share your political journey with the RJC and our members.

Send us an email with your story. (Please include your name and contact information.) We will print some of the best stories in upcoming e-newsletters.

Can’t wait.
