Endorsements include Adam Frisch, opponent to far-right Rep. Lauren Boebert (CO-03)
Today, DMFI PAC announced its third round of general election endorsements, including 13 Democratic candidates running for House and Senate, and a new digital ad supporting Congresswoman Elaine Luria’s re-election campaign.
“Building on DMFI PAC’s efforts to keep our Democratic majorities in Congress, we are proud to endorse this dedicated group of public servants and pro-Israel champions, many of whom are running in key battleground and red-to-blue districts,” said DMFI PAC Chairman Mark Mellman.
“We’re also proud to launch a new digital ad supporting Congresswoman Elaine Luria in Virginia’s 2nd District, which details her Republican opponent’s extreme position on a woman’s right to choose and highlights the congresswoman’s commitment to veterans and reproductive choice.” In July, DMFI PAC endorsed Rep. Elaine Luria’s general election campaign. The digital ad targets likely voters in Virginia. Congresswoman Luria’s opponent, Jen Kiggans, would vote for a national abortion ban and supports allowing states to outlaw abortion in cases of rape, incest, or danger to the woman’s health.
DMFI PAC’s third round of endorsements includes three candidates running to fill open seats or to flip their districts from Republican to Democratic control, including General Treasurer Seth Magaziner (RI-02), Dr. Asif Mahmood (CA-40), and Josh Riley (NY-19). In Colorado’s 3rd District, DMFI PAC is endorsing Adam Frisch, who is running to defeat Republican extremist, Trump loyalist, and QAnon conspiracy theorist Rep. Lauren Boebert. DMFI PAC is also endorsing several incumbent candidates who are pro-Israel champions, including Senator Michael Bennet (CO-SEN), frontline candidate Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin (MI-07), and Reps. Brendan Boyle (PA-02), Lois Frankel (FL-22), Grace Meng (NY-06), and Joseph Morelle (NY-25).
“A strong U.S.-Israel alliance is critical for our national security and the health of democracies around the globe,” said Senator Michael Bennet. “I’m thankful for DMFI PAC’s endorsement and will continue my work in the Senate to preserve and strengthen America’s vital relationship with Israel.”
“It has been an honor to fight for a strong U.S.-Israel relationship and advocate for shared Democratic values in Congress. I’m grateful to have the support of DMFI PAC and look forward to continuing this important work,” said Congresswoman Grace Meng.

Over the next several weeks, DMFI PAC is also helping endorsees in key races by encouraging its extensive network of pro-Israel Democrats to join virtual phonebanks to connect with other Democrats and get out the vote.
DMFI PAC exclusively supports Democratic candidates who reflect the diversity of our country, work to advance the Biden-Harris agenda, and support a strong U.S.-Israel relationship. In the 2022 primary election season, DMFI PAC helped pro-Israel Democrats win 85% of the races in which it endorsed, and more than 74% of the PAC’s independent expenditures have helped candidates of color.
