PRO-ISRAEL AMERICA ENDORSES 2020 HOUSE CANDIDATE
CONGRESSWOMAN JOYCE BEATTY
January 27, 2020, WASHINGTON DC – Today, Pro-Israel America, a nation-wide grassroots network dedicated to helping elect pro-Israel members of Congress, announced its endorsement for 2020 House of Representatives candidate Joyce Beatty (D-OH).
“Pro-Israel America is endorsing Representative Joyce Beatty because she has worked tirelessly to ensure that the United States remains a strong ally for Israel,” said Jeff Mendelsohn, Executive Director of Pro-Israel America. “Rep. Beatty has been a strong champion of the U.S.-Israel relationship and has worked to keep both our nations safe through advancing our alliance. She is facing a primary opponent who has not been transparent about her views on the U.S.-Israel alliance and who is backed by a group that seeks to cut funding for security assistance to Israel.”
Congresswoman Beatty is running for re-election in Ohio’s 3rd district, a seat which she has held since 2013. Rep. Beatty has been a longtime supporter of the U.S.-Israel relationship. She cosponsored the United States-Israel Cooperation Enhancement and Regional Security Act, which would strengthen the security of both the U.S. and Israel, and voted earlier this year to oppose the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement that seeks to isolate and weaken Israel.
Pro-Israel America is committed to bringing support from our grassroots advocacy network directly to the elections that matter most to the pro-Israel community. Pro-Israel America endorses candidates from both sides of the aisle, now totaling thirty-six candidates, including 15 Republicans and 21 Democrats.
Pro-Israel America’s 2020 Congressional election endorsements include: Republican Senators Susan Collins, Joni Ernst, Cory Gardner, Lindsay Graham, Jim Risch and Ben Sasse, and Democratic Senators Chris Coons, Doug Jones and Gary Peters. Endorsements for Democratic House of Representatives candidates include Democratic Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and Representatives Joyce Beatty, Henry Cuellar, Ted Deutch, Eliot Engel, Josh Gottheimer, Ted Lieu, Elaine Luria, Dan Lipinski, Carolyn Maloney, Gregory Meeks, Grace Meng, Stephanie Murphy, Tom O’Halleran, Brad Schneider, David Scott, Brad Sherman and Juan Vargas. Endorsements for Republican House of Representatives candidates include Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Representatives Don Bacon, Steve Chabot, Brian Fitzpatrick, Kay Granger, Brian Mast, Michael McCaul, Joe Wilson and Lee Zeldin.
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.
