JULY 18, 2019, WASHINGTON DC – Pro-Israel America, a growing political organization focused on building grassroots support to help elect pro-Israel members of Congress, today announced endorsements of three 2020 candidates for Congressional seats, Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA), Representative Elaine Luria (D-VA), and Representative Lee Zeldin (R-NY).
