Pro-Israel America Endorses 2020 House Candidates Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney and Congressman David Scott
December 6, 2019, WASHINGTON DC – Today Representative Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and Representative David Scott (D-GA) were endorsed for their respective 2020 reelection campaigns by Pro-Israel America, a nation-wide grassroots network dedicated to electing pro-Israel members of Congress.
“With the 2020 election upon us, our grassroots advocacy network is mobilizing to support pro-Israel candidates,” said Jeff Mendelsohn, Executive Director of Pro-Israel America. “Today, we are proud to endorse Representative Carolyn Maloney, a long-time champion of the U.S.-Israel relationship. We are also proud to endorse Representative David Scott, a dedicated, outspoken champion of strengthening ties between the United States and Israel.”
Congresswoman Maloney is running for reelection in the 12th district of New York where she has served for three terms. Rep. Maloney repeatedly supported sending foreign aid to Israel, voted to support increased funding for the Iron Dome which has been integral for Israel’s security, voted against the Iran nuclear deal and is at the forefront of combatting anti-Semitism and anti-Semitic acts around the world. She is facing several primary challengers.
Congressman Scott is running for reelection in the 13th district of Georgia where he has served for nine terms. Rep. Scott is firmly committed to America’s relationship with Israel, including opposing the Iran nuclear deal and voting to reauthorize security assistance to Israel. He is facing a primary challenge from Cobb County Democratic Party chairman Michael Owens, who unsuccessfully challenged Rep. Scott in 2014.
