Former President Donald Trump continues to pick up non-traditional allies in his third quest for the White House as President Joe Biden continues alienating what were once solid Democratic constituencies like blacks, Hispanics, and Jewish voters.

A prominent grassroots organization representing Jewish Republicans nationwide is highlighting its most extensive fundraising and expenditure campaign in support of a GOP presidential nominee to date. The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC), in an announcement exclusively shared with Fox News on Thursday, emphasized its dedication to raising at least $5 million, sourced from its donors and its RJC Victory Fund super PAC, to support former President Trump in his upcoming November White House rematch against President Biden.

RJC national political director Sam Markstein highlighted that this “will be the RJC’s largest effort ever to mobilize support in the Jewish community for President Trump.” Also, Markstein noted that the announcement is “in addition to our $15 million independent expenditure,” which he described as the largest independent expenditure in the organization’s history.

The announcement coincides with weeks of anti-Israel protests that have erupted on college campuses nationwide due to Israel’s conflict with Hamas in Gaza. These demonstrations in support of Palestinians have garnered significant attention in cable news and online coverage. Protesters have voiced criticism against President Biden’s backing of Israel in its conflict with Hamas and have urged colleges and universities to sever financial ties with the Israeli government.

Polls indicate that while many Democrats hold differing views on the demonstrations, Republicans are largely unified in their opposition. According to a recent Fox News national poll, eight out of ten Republicans surveyed expressed opposition to the protests, with only 15% indicating support for the demonstrations. Half of Democrats surveyed said they supported the demonstrations, with 41% opposed.

“As antisemitism spikes to record highs and America’s relationship with our ally Israel continues to reach new lows, the Jewish community is more energized than ever to turn the page from the failures, broken promises, and betrayals by Joe Biden. November 5 cannot come soon enough,” Markstein argued.

The RJC is a four-decades-old group that describes itself as “the national grassroots organization of Jewish Republicans and represents tens of thousands of Jewish Republicans across this country.”
