David Brog, former Jewish leader of CUFI, candidate for Congress – J.

David Krone, head of global public policy for Apollo, said he found Brog a key ally in an attempt to convince House Republicans to support legislation known as the Awareness Act. anti-Semitism that the Senate passed in 2016. The bill was blocked in the House by former Rep. Bob Goodlatte, then Chairman of the House Judiciary. Brog introduced Krone to the management of CUFI who joined in support of legislation which later became the federal definition of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) combat anti-Semitism on campus.

Krone described Brog as “a thoughtful curator” who “will sit down and talk to people and listen to them”. He said it’s a qualification you “can’t ask for more than that” and that’s what’s lacking in America.

Brog said he was not actively seeking Trump’s endorsement in the primary, but would welcome it if granted. He said he supported Trump’s policies and gave him credit for leading the Republican Party in the direction he wanted to see, standing up for the working class. But Brog has made it clear that he has a very different personality from Trump. “I’m more of a consensus builder and I don’t like attacking people,” he said.

Brog said he told his wife he wanted to be a congressman, “but I don’t want it enough to compromise my family, my faith, or my integrity.”
