Denver Jews rally around Dr. Tre Pennie, Texas Republican Candidate for Congress

/PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Tre Pennie, U.S. Congressional Candidate for District 30 (TX) was invited to Denver to speak at the home of Vicki and Rob Schwartz. Dr. Pennie is a nationally-recognized, African-American, law enforcement advocate, who has appeared on many national media outlets. Dr. Pennie is a U.S. Army veteran with a Doctorate in Higher Education. He is also an "active" 21-year Dallas Police sergeant.

When asked, why did a group of Denver Jews come together to support Candidate Pennie? Vicki Schwartz, co-host of the fundraiser, said, "Inviting Dr. Pennie to Denver was a no-brainer. He is a strong African American candidate, who supports Israel and has a record of fighting against anti-Semitism. Having heard his interviews and reading stories on him, I was impressed with his courage in fighting anti-Semitism, racism and community violence. We also researched his opponent Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) and found out that she supports a documented anti-Semite, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and constantly votes against Israel." Dr. Pennie told the audience, "When I received the invitation to speak to the Jewish community, I didn't hesitate because I have always valued our religious kinship." Pennie said that his grandmother was a devout Southern Baptist, who believed that Jews were God's chosen people and respected their contributions to the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960's inclu
