Halie Soifer, the executive director of the Jewish Democratic Council of America, denounced both Greene and Gurtler. “It is unconscionable — yet sadly not surprising — to see Republican candidates in Georgia aligned with antisemites, neo-Nazis and white nationalists,” she said. “With a president who himself has referred to neo-Nazis as ‘very fine people,’ espoused antisemitic comments and emboldened extremists in our country, it’s no wonder that Republican candidates feel they have the license to align with hate groups.”
