Jeff Stone (born January 30, 1956) is an American politician currently serving in the California State Senate. He is a Republican representing the 28th district, encompassing parts of Riverside County. Prior to his 2014 election to the state senate, he was a Riverside County Supervisor. In the 2014 general election, he defeated former Assemblywoman Bonnie Garcia, another Republican. Stone is Jewish.[2] He was the only Republican member of the California Legislative Jewish Caucus until he resigned from the caucus, saying it was preoccupied with criticizing President Donald Trump. He resigned the same day the Jewish Caucus released a statement condemning the white supremacist Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville.[3]

In 2016, Stone was the Republican nominee for California's 36th congressional district, but he lost the general election to Raul Ruiz by a wide margin.
