The Republican Jewish Coalition has launched a $6.5 million campaign against President Obama in Florida and other battleground states, backed by money from casino magnate Sheldon Adelson. The campaign is called “My Buyer’s Remorse,” and the RJC is collecting videos from Jews who voted for Obama in 2008 and are voting for Romney this time.
A recent poll by the American Jewish Committee showed Obama’s support among Florida’s Jewish voters running at 69% to Romney’s 25%, with a margin of error of 6%. Obama won 76% of the Florida Jewish vote in 2008.
My favorite part of the campaign, though, is this Florida billboard which reads, “Obama. . . Oy Vey!!” Isn’t that what Jews are saying about Adelson?
