May 5, 2020, WASHINGTON, DC- Today Pro-Israel America, a nation-wide grassroots network dedicated to electing pro-Israel members of Congress, endorsed Representative Tom Suozzi (D) (NY-03) and Representative Denver Riggleman (R) (VA-05) for their respective 2020 re-election campaigns.
Jeff Mendelsohn, Executive Director of Pro-Israel America, issued the following statement:
“Now more than ever, it is important to have leaders on both sides of the aisle that value the U.S.-Israel relationship and are committed to strengthening that relationship, which helps keep both our countries safe.
“Representative Riggleman has proven his commitment to a strong U.S.-Israel relationship during his time in Congress. He has taken a stand against the harmful and divisive BDS movement and acted on legislation to re-authorize security assistance to Israel.
“Representative Suozzi has been a strong ally to Israel in Congress during his two terms in office. He has introduced and passed a bill that imposed sanctions against Hezbollah and has consistently voted in favor of pro-Israel legislation.”
