Tonight, DMFI PAC congratulates 10 more of its endorsees on their primary victories in Illinois and Ohio.

“DMFI PAC is thrilled to congratulate the large number of pro-Israel champions on their primary victories tonight. Several of them were first elected to Congress thanks in part to support from DMFI PAC,” said DMFI PAC Chairman Mark Mellman. “From deep blue districts to critical swing seats that will be Democrats’ majority makers, this diverse group of DMFI PAC endorsees proved again tonight that being pro-Israel is not just wise policy, it’s also winning politics.”

The DMFI PAC candidates who will advance to the general election in November include Reps. Joyce Beatty (OH-03), Shontel Brown (OH-11), Nikki Budzinski (IL-13), Sean Casten (IL-06), Bill Foster (IL-11), Raja Krishnamoorthi (IL-08), Greg Landsman (OH-01), Brad Schneider (IL-10), Eric Sorensen (IL-17), and Emilia Sykes (OH-13).

In 2021, DMFI PAC’s efforts played a substantial role in building momentum for Congresswoman Shontel Brown, helping her overcome a 30-point deficit against anti-Israel candidate Nina Turner.

In the 2022 midterm elections, DMFI PAC was the largest outside spender in IL-06, boosting Congressman Sean Casten’s campaign using cable and broadcast TV, digital, social media, and direct mail to help defeat anti-Israel incumbent, former Congresswoman Marie Newman.

In 2022, DMFI PAC also helped bring new pro-Israel Representatives Eric Sorensen (IL-17) and Emilia Sykes (OH-13) to Congress, supporting them with sizable general election ad buys through its independent expenditure program.

DMFI PAC has played a vital role in supporting pro-Israel Democrats since its inception, backing winners in the contest for president and key Senate and House races. During last year’s Midterm Election, DMFI PAC helped bring 21 brand-new pro-Israel Democrats to the 118th Congress — with over 80% of its endorsed candidates winning their races — and helped defeat anti-Israel candidates. Some 77% of the PAC’s spending supported candidates of color.
