GOP self-analysis cites RJC as worthy of emulation


A report commissioned by the Republican National Committee on how to reverse the party's fortunes cited the Republican Jewish Coalition as a group worth emulating.

"One outside group that has been particularly successful at engaging its community and increasing its Republican support is the Republican Jewish Coalition," said the "Growth and Opportunity Project" report unveiled Monday. "We should incorporate some of its tactics in our efforts."

The RJC reference was in a section calling for outreach to demographic groups that don't traditionally vote GOP, among them Hispanics, women and African-Americans.

The RJC campaigned aggressively against President Obama in the last election and his Jewish share fell from between 74 and 78 percent in 2008 to about 69 percent this election.

Among the five authors of the report was Ari Fleischer, a spokesman for the George W. Bush White House who is an RJC board member.
