(Sacramento, CA) – Senator Jeff Stone (R-Riverside County) has resigned from the California Legislative Jewish Caucus.
As the only Republican member of the Jewish Caucus, Senator Stone said:
“When I was invited to join the Jewish Caucus, I was expressly told that it was a non-partisan Caucus, and the issues we were going to be involved with would focus on promoting the interests of the Jewish people in California and around the world.
“Since the election of President Trump, it seems that there has been a divergence from the Caucus’ original mission. It has clearly become a vehicle for a Legislative Caucus that receives state resources to merely criticize our duly elected President.”
Senator Stone was the sole Republican member of the Legislative Jewish Caucus. His resignation is effective immediately.
