September 1, 2020 (Washington, DC)– Pro-Israel America (PIA) Executive Director Jeff Mendelsohn issued the following statement in response to Congressman Richard Neal’s primary victory:
“Pro-Israel America congratulates Representative Richard Neal on his primary victory on Tuesday. During his sixteen terms in Congress, Rep. Neal has been a steadfast supporter of America’s important relationship with Israel. We are happy to see that he soundly defeated an opponent who had aligned himself with some of the most vocal detractors of the U.S.-Israel alliance in Congress and beyond. We look forward to continuing our work with Congressman Neal to help further strengthen the U.S.-Israel relationship towards a safer and more secure future for both of our great nations.
“This victory marks the twelfth competitive primary victory for Pro-Israel America to date. We are proud and grateful for our pro-Israel grassroots activists who have helped Representative Neal and others win big in their primaries. We plan to take this energy to propel our candidates to victory in November.”
