The Republican Jewish Coalition issued a statement from Executive Director Matt Brooks mourning the passing for former New York Mayor Ed Koch.

Here is the full statement:

"Mayor Koch was a passionate and principled leader and an outspoken defender of Israel and the Jewish community. He chose principle over politics and didn't engage in partisan bitterness. In a long and controversial public career, he remained true to his commitment to do what was right for his constituents, his community, and his beloved State of Israel."

Brooks added, "The RJC was honored to work with Mayor Koch over the years. He was a patriot and we will miss him."
