6 Jews Named for State Office in Cleveland Republican Primaries

August 15, 1930
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

For the first time in the political history of Cuyahoga county, which includes the city of Cleveland, six Jews were nominated on the Republican ticket in yesterday’s primaries. Joseph N. Ackerman, twice elected state senator, was renominated and David Copland was also named for the senate. Joseph G. Ehrlich, Joseph H. Silbert, Martin Blum and Ben F. Sacharow were nominated for the assembly.

The result was a great surprise in view of the fact that the opponents of Maurice Maschke, leader of the Republican party here, and a Jew, staged an open fight against Jews and raised the Jewish question.
