RJC denounces Holocaust denier who won GOP nomination for Illinois House seat

The Republican Jewish Coalition denounces Arthur Jones, a Holocaust denier who won the Republican nomination in an Illinois House district on Tuesday after running unopposed.

“Arthur Jones is a Nazi, not a Republican. It is a disgrace that he has won the Republican nomination” in the Chicago-area district, says RJC Chairman Norm Coleman in a statement Wednesday.

“Like the RNC and the Illinois GOP, the RJC has flat out rejected Arthur Jones. Jones does not represent Republican values, and he doesn’t deserve to have an ‘R’ after his name on the ballot. The GOP didn’t invite Jones into the party, the only mistake was not running a candidate in an uncompetitive, safe-Democrat district,” adds Coleman.

“There is no place for Nazis and white supremacists in the Republican Party.”
