Florida GOP candidate Joe Kaufman, who is running against Debbie Wasserman-Shultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, says the Florida Democrat is wrong to say the Supreme Court's ruling in support of Hobby Lobby to opt out of covering contraception in its employee healthcare plans is hurtful to women.

"She talks about a war on women — the war on women is not from Hobby Lobby," Kaufman told J.D. Hayworth on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV on Tuesday.

"The war on women is the fact that women can't get jobs inside America. The war on women is the fact that healthcare is through the roof," he explained.

Kaufman added that religious institutions "shouldn't be forced to do something that's against their religious rights, and that's this case."

"What we need to do in America is create jobs, build up the economy, build up energy in the United States. And if we build up our energy we will have all the jobs, we will have a great economy, we will bring back that revenue that went overseas," he said.

Kaufman, a former Anti-Defamation League member who is running for Wasserman-Shultz's seat on the House of Representatives, said his opponent's job on the Democratic National Committee has created "a conflict of interest for Debbie ever since she accepted this DNC chair job."

The Republican says that it's going to create more of a problem in her own election because she's "going to have to spend more time in her own district, but she can't do that because as DNC chair she's got to go around the country during election time raising money for hundreds of candidates."

Kaufman also addressed the alleged shooting of the three Israeli teenagers by the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas. Their bodies were discovered Monday after they had been missing for more than two weeks.

Israel launched airstrikes into the Gaza Strip on Tuesday in response to the killings.

"I'm not going to tell Israel what they need to do, but my message to Israel is that whatever they do to respond to this, I am 100 percent with them in that," he said.

Kaufman condemned the Obama administration, saying that "it seems like they've helped Israel's enemies at the same time they've gone against Israel's peace partners."
