PRO-ISRAEL AMERICA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR JEFF MENDELSOHN STATEMENT ON CHAIRWOMAN NITA LOWEY’S RETIREMENT ANNOUNCEMENT
OCTOBER 11, 2019, WASHINGTON DC – Pro-Israel America Executive Director Jeff Mendelsohn issued the following statement in response to Chairwoman Nita Lowey’s announcement that she would not seek re-election in 2020:
“Chairwoman Nita Lowey has always been a strong champion of the U.S.-Israel relationship. We need more members of Congress who understand and value our alliance with Israel the way she does, and who work to secure resources and advance policies that help strengthen it. Chairwoman Lowey will be missed by the pro-Israel community, and we thank her for her service to our country. Pro-Israel America will be monitoring the open race in New York’s 17th District and will work to ensure her successor continues to reflect her district’s pro-Israel values.”
Pro-Israel America works to strengthen support for the U.S.-Israel relationship through promoting and supporting the election of pro-Israel candidates to federal office, regardless of party; educating voters about significant races and candidates’ support for Israel; and creating a simple, accessible online portal where members can make pro-Israel campaign contributions.
