“In Georgia, there are approximately 100,000 registered Jewish voters,” says Michael Rosenzweig, a board member of the Jewish Democratic Council of America. “Out of them, 50,000 are unaffiliated. Biden won the state by 12,000 votes. Despite the Jewish vote historically going to the Democrats, if the GOP would’ve peeled off a few thousand more Jewish votes, the result might have been different.”

Rosenzweig continues: “It’s not that they’re counting on Jews voting Republican. But if in these runoffs they can convince enough of them to stay home because they’re unsure about the candidates, then they’ve done their job. That’s what we’re fighting against.”
