Lena Epstein, a Republican congressional candidate for Michigan’s 11th district, told Bold TV that she faced “blatant political discrimination” when a fundraiser at her country club, founded to serve the Jewish population in the Detroit area, was canceled “because of [her] political views” and support of President Donald Trump. Epstein said she believes that she is seen as a “potential threat to the Democrats” because she is a conservative Jewish woman, which goes against the conventional political views of the Jewish community. Epstein said the issue “highlights the divisiveness that we are facing as a nation,” but emphasized that it will only further her “resolve to serve the public.”
