Freshman Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich., on Sunday, suggested that the GOP is against anti-Semitism for money, and is intent on swaying the Jewish vote.
Slotkin, who is Jewish, made the comments during a speech to a Jewish Democratic summer conference in Michigan.

You are on the search for our donors and try to sway us.”
